Gov. Christie draws mixed reaction at town hall meeting

Gov. Chris Christie resumed his series of town hall events yesterday by calling on lawmakers to move a package of bills strengthening disclosure and transparency

UNION - Gov. Chris Christie resumed his series of town hall events yesterday by calling on lawmakers to move a package of bills strengthening disclosure and transparency laws, calling the lack of movement an "ethical time lapse."

The bills include a ban on holding two elected offices at once and a measure that would force lawmakers to turn over the same personal information that Gov. Christie is required to disclose.

The town hall event, Christie's first since taking the summer off, was held at the Boys and Girls Club in Union.

A couple dozen police and firefighters protested the event outside. But Christie was greeted with a standing ovation inside.
