TRENTON – Gov. Chris Christie is scheduled to host his 90th town hall meeting in Howell Wednesday and it appears the regular affair is getting a bit of a facelift.
Or, at the very least, a name change.
The Howell town hall is being dubbed the governor’s “middle-class reform agenda,” according to an e-mail release announcing Christie’s schedule.
The new “Christie Middle-Class Reform Agenda” banner announcing the event differs from the old logo that use to be attached to the announcements, which read: “The Jersey Comeback has begun.”
The subtle alteration to the governor’s e-mail letterhead comes after the governor has been hammered by state Democrats for boasting the Jersey comeback as the state’s unemployment has ticked up.
It also comes after a recent Rutgers-Eagleton poll released earlier this month found more than two-thirds of New Jersey residents believe the governor has overhyped the comeback.
