No word as of yet what book the Governor read to students but I would bet that it wasn’t “My Pet Goat”:
June 8, 2010
Today, June 8, 2010 Governor Christie paid a surprise visit to a very lucky 3rd grade class at Village School. After reading a story to the class the students were given an opportunity to ask the Governor questions. Below is a sample of questions they asked:
They asked the Governor what was the coolest part of his job, and Governor Christie responded, “having dinner at the White House with the President and Mrs. Obama and all of the other governors in the nation.” One student asked what his major goal was and he responded, “to have everyone in New Jersey have a job.”
They asked about what was the hardest part of his job and he said that it was telling people, “No.” One student asked what it was like when he first became governor. Governor Christie explained that he went into his office and didn’t know what he was supposed to do and no one would come and visit him because they were too afraid to enter his office. One student asked what the best part of being governor is and he said, “visiting students in schools.” He also likes to let students into his office when they are on tours of the State house where his office is in Trenton on the Delaware River.
Mrs. Duncan, Superintendent of Holmdel schools asked the last question before the Governor posed for pictures with the class. She asked Governor Christie why reading is so important to him that he would spend his time visiting us and reading a book to our 3rd grade class? The Governor answered her by saying, that reading has always been very important to him and he encourages his children and all children to be avid readers. Mrs. Klinger-Rossi and her class then presented Governor Christie with a certificate for excellence in reading!
