PRINCETON - New polls show Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) is improving his standing with voters. However, at a Mercer County farm during a bill signing, the governor admitted that not everyone will be happy with his final decision on the Port Authority's proposed toll hikes.
The governor says it is decisions like the one regarding the proposed toll hikes that are why he gets the "big bucks." If Christie decides to veto the plan to raise Hudson River tolls by 50 percent, he knows commuters will be happy.
However, strong turnout from trade workers at yesterday's public hearings, according to Christie, show hundreds will be disappointed if he does intervene. The governor also defended Rutgers University against a recent Bloomberg report questioning whether the school spends too much money chasing athletic glory at the expense of academics.
