Dear Editor,

I would like to thank Governor Chris Christie for holding a town hall meeting yesterday, January 26th at the VFW in Middletown as well to additionally thank Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno for her wonderful introduction of the governor.

It was a privilege to attend the townhall, which thanks to Governor Christie was a breath of fresh air in New Jersey politics because, as always he was brutally honest about the financial status of our state, without the political correctness that got New Jersey into this mess.

Many important issues were discussed and the Governor engaged in an open dialog with members of the audience. For more complex questions that required research prior providing an answer, Governor Christie was sure to have his staff exchange contact information with the person who asked the question in order to provide an accurate response.

Again thank you Governor Christie and Lt. Governor Guadagno for an outstanding townhall meeting and congratulations on your first year in office!
