HAMILTON TOWNSHIP - Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) gave the state Legislature a report card full of incompletes and failing grades at his 14th town hall event of the year this morning in Hamilton Township.

The governor chastised what he called the "do-nothing Legislature" for not moving on his proposals to overhaul the state's pension and health care systems. He also criticized lawmakers for not giving his office more control over state boards and authorities.

Christie drew applause from the crowd at the Grounds for Sculpture when he said that lawmakers should have moved school board elections to November so more people could vote. New Jersey is holding school board elections tomorrow.
