FAIRFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie is planning to continue his campaign for changes to New Jersey’s pension system for public workers at his town hall meeting in Fairfield.
Christie’s appearance Wednesday comes as federal investigators and lawmakers continue a pair of probes into a political retribution scheme revolving around lane closures near the George Washington Bridge last year.
A taxpayer-funded report commissioned by Christie’s office cleared the Republican governor and his top staff of any wrongdoing. But the public doesn’t seem to believe him.
A Rutgers-Eagleton poll released Tuesday found that more than one-fifth of voters fully believe his explanation. Still, the majority of New Jersey voters approve of his job performance.
