Christie Holding Town Hall Meeting in Belmar Thursday

Continues 'Town Hall' meetings with public, this time in Hurricane Sandy devastated borough

Gov. Chris Christie will continue his "town hall" meetings, holding a public event Thursday in the hurricane-damaged borough of Belmar.

Throughout his administratrion the governor has held many of these town hall meetings, holding events to speak with the public and interact with local citizens as Christie promotes "the Jersey Comeback."

These days the dialogue has turned to coming back from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, which destroyed large areas of the state, including Thursday's town hall host town, Belmar.

The borough saw more than a thousand homes flooded by the storm, said Mayor Matt Doherty, and the boardwalk was uplifted by the storm surge and destroyed.

The town hall meeting is Thursday, Dec. 20 at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:15 p.m. at the borough gymnasium at Belmar Municipal Building, 601 Main Street in Belmar, 07719.

Seating is on a first come, first serve basis and open to the public. Please RSVP by clicking here. Organizers are encouraging early arrival as the building has limited capacity.

Why not hold this at 6 p.m. when it would be infinitely more accessible by those who work regular hours?

Good point Tom. I have often wondered that as well. Although true, that he has held many of these town hall meetings throughout the term if his office, they are always hed mid-day. I would love to attend, but 3pm is almost an impossibility for me as I am sure that it is for you as well.
