At Chris Christie's first town hall meeting since Hurricane Sandy, the New Jersey governor promises to put politics aside.
Beyond New Jersey’s borders, Gov. Chris Christie’s post-Hurricane Sandy motives have been a topic of debate. His embrace of President Barack Obama following his arrival in New Jersey after the storm drew jeers from hardline Republicans concerned with the image it would present so close to the election. Some on the left have even intimated that the handshake, delivered soon after New Jersey was hit by the most devastating storm in its history, and as millions of residents remained without power, was a calculated move on Christie’s part that could lead to him throwing his hat in the ring for the Democratic nomination in the 2016 Presidential election. None of it matters, Christie said to a standing room only audience at Belmar’s municipal …

A recap of recent activities the staff of Freehold Borough School has done to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
While most of Freehold has returned back to normal in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Freehold Borough School staff has realized that for many students, families, and teachers, normalcy is still far away.
