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.

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?

Who is going to ask the questions that we need to ask?

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.
