NJ marks Gov. Christie's 100th day in office

Over the last 100 days, Gov. Chris Christie has made headlines with his aggressive attitude toward budget cuts and fiscal reform.

In his first three months, Gov. Christie axed budgets across the state, upended the teachers unions and took aim at state pension reform.

Now, Christie has his sights set on property tax reform, proposing legislation to cap tax increases.

Comments on News 12 New Jersey's Facebook Fan Page show Garden State residents are split on the governor's performance over the last 100 days.

Facebook fan Lucille commends Christie, "I give him kudos because he is making all the decisions that should have been made by previous Governors."

Julissa tells News 12 New Jersey on Facebook, "He needs to be for the people not against them. Sure NJ has problems, but how about finding solutions that can help, especially our school systems, not add more to them."

Despite the milestone, Gov. Christie will spend the day just like any other day according to his press secretary, Mike Drewniak. "It is only a number and it is not any particular hallmark. The governor and his staff will continue to push their policies which we believe need to be brought to bear in NJ under the circumstances."
