Gov. Chris Christie is returning to a Jersey Shore town whose boardwalk was washed away by Superstorm Sandy.

Christie will be in Belmar on Tuesday for another of his signature town halls. The meeting at the Monmouth County shore town will focus on ongoing storm recovery efforts.

The 51-year-old Republican says he sought re-election primarily to ensure that the state fully recovers from the October 2012 mega-storm, which caused $37 billion in damages and was the largest natural disaster to strike the state.

The administration has been criticized for the length of time it's taking for relief funds to reach needy homeowners.

Christie's office also has denied allegations that two senior officials threatened to withhold Sandy aid to a city unless its mayor signed off on a favored redevelopment project.

<![CDATA[Police Must Stop Photographing Christie Protesters: AG]]> Thu, 20 Mar 2014 12:32:44 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/AP353574201352.jpg

New Jersey's attorney general has ordered the State Police to stop photographing protesters at Gov. Chris Christie's town hall meetings on the brink of Christie’s latest meeting with voters.

In a statement issued to The Star-Ledger of Newark, acting Attorney General John Hoffman said the State Police is responsible for the safety and security of the governor and public at town hall meetings. In doing so, Hoffman said troopers are careful to guarantee First Amendment rights are respected whether positive or negative toward the governor and his policies.

A spokesman for the governor said Christie was unaware that his critics were being photographed.

Wednesday's order came a day after a man who identified himself as a member of the State Police photographed protesters at a Christie event.

Christie is scheduled to hold another town hall meeting on Thursday, this time in Hunterdon County.

Christie is expected to talk about state finances on Thursday.

Christie's last two town halls were disrupted by hecklers affiliated with groups that have opposed him.

At least a dozen people were thrown out of a town hall in South River on Tuesday after shouting criticisms at Christie. They complained about how his administration is distributing federal recovery money and questioned Christie's role in a political payback scandal orchestrated by his aides.

A traffic-blocking plot and other possible wrongdoing are under criminal investigation, perhaps undermining Christie's potential as a 2016 Republican presidential candidate.

Christie's town halls have become less predictable since the scandal broke, but audiences remain mostly supportive.

<![CDATA[NJ Mayor Meets With Prosecutors]]> Tue, 25 Feb 2014 07:37:05 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/AP53933087817.jpg

The mayor of the town where allies of Gov. Chris Christie created traffic jams last fall has met with federal prosecutors.
 
Tim Donohue, the lawyer for Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, confirmed the meeting in a statement issued Monday.
 
Donohue said Sokolich voluntarily met with members of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark on Friday to discuss the lane closures at the George Washington Bridge last September. But Donohue said neither he nor Sokolich would provide further comment on the meeting due to the ongoing criminal investigation.
 
Emails and text messages subpoenaed by a New Jersey legislative committee have revealed that an aide to Christie emailed a high-level Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official and told him, "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee."
