Christie begins making inaugural plans

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Governor Chris Christie is making plans for his second inauguration.

The governor announced the formation of his inaugural committee on Wednesday and named his brother, Todd, and former law partner Bill Palatucci as its chairmen.

Todd Christie and Palatucci co-chaired the governor’s 2010 inaugural committee.

Palatucci is one of Christie’s closest advisers. He also chaired Christie’s re-election campaign.

The inaugural festivities will take place Jan. 21.

How to purchase tickets and other details will be released in coming days.

Proceeds from the events will be donated to charity.

Christie’s first inaugural netted nearly half a million dollars for three charities selected by the Republican.
