Report Card: Two-Years of Gov. Christie

February 24, 2012

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.
