The event, which takes place at St. Peter’s University’s Mac Mahon Student Center on March 24th from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., is hosted by Mayor Steven Fulop and ex-Gov. Jim McGreevey – who currently runs the Jersey City Employment and Training Program.
Other speakers for the event include Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano, Paterson Mayor Joey Torres, New Jersey Reentry Corporation President John Koufos, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Koch Industries, Inc. Mark Holden and Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise, among others.
Christie, a presidential candidate who has dropped out of the race, made headlines over his appearance with Republican frontrunner Donald Trump on Super Tuesday, per CNN.
Meanwhile, Christie still has to battle adversity in his home state, as six New Jersey newspapers have asked for his resignation as governor in light of refusing to take “off-topic” questions at a Trenton press conference on Monday (h/t Asbury Park Press).
