Chris Christie

Governor
State of New Jersey
Trenton, NJ

Chris Christie is the 55th governor of New Jersey, first elected in 2009 and overwhelmingly re-elected in 2013. He is a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Before becoming governor, Christie served as a legislator in Morris County, in Northern Jersey, and then as a federal attorney for the state from 2002 to 2008.

By dint of his office, Christie is co-head, along with the governor of New York, of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. That position makes him a major decision-maker regarding the region’s infrastructure and infrastructure development.

Lane closures in September 2013 on the George Washington Bridge, which the Port oversees, were linked to Christie’s top aides. Christie himself has not been found to have done anything wrong. Also, Christie acted in 2010 to cancel a major tunnel project under the Hudson River to Manhattan called Access to the Region’s Core. The governor cited possible cost overruns as his motive.

Christie, too, has been heavily involved in the rebuilding of the Jersey Shore following Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.

Christie was born in Newark in September 1962. He attended the University of Delaware and earned a law degree from Seton Hall.
