Governor Christie Coming to Mahwah For Town Hall
Residents are invited to meet and talk with the Governor about statewide issues next week.
Mahwah residents will have the opportunity to meet and question New Jersey Governor Chris Christie at a Town Hall event to be held in Mahwah next week, the governor's office announced Tuesday afternoon. Christie will be at Ramapo Ridge Middle School next Wednesday morning and is inviting residents to provide feedback and ask questions about state politics.
“I think this is democracy at its finest, and I’m so glad we can bring this opportunity to Mahwah residents,” Mahwah Mayor Bill Laforet said. According to Laforet, the Town Hall event is significant because it will “help establish a direct link between citizens in Mahwah and the governor of the state. How many times do we all feel like our complaints about statewide issues go unheard? At this meeting, Mahwah residents will have the unique opportunity to get immediate feedback from the governor.”
Laforet said he petitioned the Governor’s office for several months to set up the open forum. The mayor said he expects a “big turnout” because “it’s not about personal politics; it’s about the ability to interact with your government, and that’s an important thing for people in Mahwah to do.”
Christie’s Town Hall is happening next Wednesday at Ramapo Ridge Middle School. Doors open at 10:15, and the event is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. According to a release from the Governor’s Office, seating is on a first come-first served basis, so it recommends RSVPing by calling 609-777-2500 in order to secure a spot in the Town Hall audience.
