Two years into Gov. Chris Christie’s tenure in office, the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey pauses to consider the administration’s current record on civil liberties with a mid-term report card. In compiling the Governor’s record, the ACLU-NJ sought to include all information — favorable and unfavorable — to produce a fair report.
We contacted the Governor’s office directly to request its input, but received no response to our initial letter or follow-up inquiries. Please note that Gov. Christie’s priorities throughout his two years in office do not overlap perfectly with the concerns of the ACLU-NJ, giving some areas used to evaluate his performance a more extensive record than others.
