PARAMUS - Gov. Chris Christie hit the road again today to pitch his education and pension reform agenda to voters.

The governor was at a town hall meeting at the Elk's Lodge in Paramus this morning making his case.

Christie laid out the main points Tuesday in his first State of the State address.

They include eliminating teacher tenure, closing poor-performing schools and shoring up the state pension system by requiring employees to work longer and contribute more to their retirement.

Christie also emphasized the need to continue to hold the line on spending.

Democrats say the Republican governor has cut too much, including an income tax credit for poor working families and $820 million in school aid.
