Has your opinion of Governor Christie gone up or down in the past year?

 

Ray Villa w/Aidan, Red Bank - I’ve always been a Christie fan, so it’s the same. I’ve been a supporter. I think he’s done a good job and continues to do a good job.

Sara Bowman, Ocean Grove & Jacki Wahlgren, Freehold - Sara: I thought that he was really good after Sandy, but I know people who are still out of their homes. And now, I think he’s just running for president. Jacki: I have never liked him, and I never will.I pray he never makes president.

Chris DeRise & Ira Ausfresser, Ocean - We’re both school psychologists and our opinions couldn’t go any lower. He’s been anti-education since day one. Property taxes are sky high. Businesses are running from New Jersey. And now he’s an absentee governor.

Frank Farrell, Ocean - I would say down. I don’t think he’s spending enough time in the State. I don’t think he’s done enough for education. And, number three, we haven’t seen a raise in state pensions since I don’t know when.

David Garcia & Lance Brooks, Tinton Falls - Lance: My opinion is about the same. He’s obviously concentrating more on being president then running the state, and he has been for the last year. I’m waiting to see him duck the next Bridgegate. David: I feel basically the same. I feel he’s a hot head and comes off as a bully. The leader of a state should be able to keep his cool when confronted by someone who’s irritating him.

Carol Giroud, Asbury Park - It’s gone down in the last year. It’s a combination of that bridge affair and increasing acts of bullying. I hope he doesn't run for president because he’s not a statesman. He’s not presidential material.

Pat King, Wanamassa - Down. Basically it’s because of all these trips he’s taking. If he’s president he can run the country. But he’s governor, and he should run the state.

James McNulty, Spring Lake Heights - Down. I think he’s a little too showy; too over the top. He needs to practice patience. Other than that, I love New Jersey, so, whoever is governor, I’m behind him.

Sharon Mego, Asbury Park - My opinion hasn’t changed at all. I didn’t like him to begin with and I don’t like him now.  I think his overall rating has definitely decreased, and I hope he doesn’t run for president because he’ll surely lose.

Doreen Miller, Asbury Park & Janet Schultz, Toms River - We both say down. His temper has gotten him in trouble, number one. The Bridgegate matter. We think there’s more to that. He’s cutting senior programs, which is hurting the seniors.
