Saw that one Patersonian tried to take the Governor on about our public schools. Chris Christie is great with the crowd and answered well. "Give my ideas a chance and schools will get better."The crowd was pretty intense. They listened. And the Governor who continues to grow on all even said something about the guy asking the questions in a supportive way. A show no one should have missed. The Church was packed. Good thing for Paterson. Let's hope it spreads to City Hall and every Street corner!

I was there, the Governor was great,(this was the first time I'd seen him in person). Being in a Democratic stronghold like Paterson, when the very rude guy kept yelling at the Governor about the public schools, even the predominantly black and Hispanic crowd wanted him to throw the guy out,(and he refused to do so), that's when I knew that he'd won the crowd over. I also noticed that the Governor didn't allow the Mayor, nor any members of the City Council speak at all,(just he and the citizens).:)
