Christie Schedules Press Conference in Seaside Park

1:30 p.m. today

Gov. Chris Christie is scheduled to host a press conference in Seaside Park today at 1:30 p.m.

The governor and his cabinet are expected to discuss the Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts while at Stockton Avenue and Ocean Avenue in Seaside Park.

Christie has made almost daily stops to some of the areas ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, such as Long Beach Island and coastal Monmouth, but this is his first stop at Seaside Park since the storm.

Many communities today began allowing limited, hour-long access over the closed Route 37 bridge for full-time residents to grab essential supplies. Bellcrest Plaza on Fischer Boulevard in Toms River has been set up as a registration area for those seeking access.

Check back to this article after the press conference for a full article on the governor's comments.

Can some reporter ask him for some legitimate reasons for the indefinate ban on residents driving to the undamaged areas of the island? If it worked on Monday, why can't it be reopened? This Governor is denying us basic constitutional rights of property and liberty by using a false danger argument to maitain his "emergancy powers". Can the national press consider someone abusing these powers in New Jersey as a legitimate candiate for the presidency?

You got it Chuck! The fifth amendment ensures us that we can not be deprived of our property without due process. EVERY American should be outraged by this! To only have rights when you don't need them is the same as having no rights at all!

I find it interesting that Christie is having a press conference on the island when everyone is saying it is unsafe to go back to the island?? wtf.... Nobody could answer the question... Who is in charge.... I mean the single person in charge in making the decisions... it shouldn't be the towns as they are not equipped to handle a diasaster such as this. Where is the leadership Christie? What is taking so long of having someone in charge of the barrier island and all that has to do with it... restoration, etc.. Right now... everyone is point fingers..

Families can't get their belongings but the governor can go on a sight seeing tour. I was a supporter, but if he doesn't restore our rights I will do everything in my limited power for his next opponent!

Why have a meeting in a place where nobody can get to?
Robert C November 09, 2012 at 04:20 PM
Who is going to ask the questions that we need to ask?

I hope that he changes that dopey sweatshirt that says "Chris Christie/Governor". We all know who he is..

This is seriously beginning to piss me off. If it is unsafe he should get himself out of my town. It is unbelievable that he is keeping my from my home and now I will have to commute an hour and 15 minutes to get to class during the spring. I hope the government pays me back for all the gas. This is utterly ridicules. I honestly think we should all march across the bridge and go home. The bridge is fine. If they are worried people will get hurt have us sign something saying we were warned but we want to be back. And stop allowing filming crews like MTV to go and film but not let residents back.
