Vineland residents welcome Christie at town hall

    You never know how a Chris Christie town hall meeting will go, but his appearance yesterday in Vineland was a welcomed one for residents.

    Invited there by the mayor’s wife, the New Jersey governor arrived a half-hour late to what the Daily Journal reported was a, “respectful, diverse audience.”
    About 400 people attended the meeting at the National Guard Armory, where Christie encouraged everyone to, “say what’s in your heart.”

    But only six people got to speak their minds to Christie, whose long answers kept crown interaction short.
