MONTVILLE - Gov. Chris Christie used his first town hall meeting in weeks to take aim at what he considers a failing municipal government and issues regarding the budget he proposed in Tuesday's address.

He told those in attendance at Pine Brook Jewish Center in Montville that Atlantic City has a poorly run local government.

"That municipal government is one of the most god-awful wasteful municipal governments in America," said Christie. "They have a mayor who has no idea what he's doing."

He also had a message for state Democrats regarding his proposed budget.

"If you pass the tax cut, I will sign it and I will make the cuts in the budget to make sure the budget is balanced," he said. "And if you don't pass it, I am happy to let the people of New Jersey decide this question in November, by who they vote for, for governor."

A final budget is due in four months.
