Chris Christie has a deep affection and strong commitment to New Jersey. Born in Newark and raised in Livingston, Chris has lived in New Jersey his entire life. Chris and his wife of 22 years, Mary Pat, now reside in Mendham, where they are raising their four children, Andrew, Sarah, Patrick and Bridget. After graduating from the University of Delaware in 1984 with a BA degree, Chris attended Seton Hall University School of Law, earning his JD degree in 1987. Chris joined a Cranford law firm and soon was named a partner. He ran for Freeholder in Morris County, an office he held from 1995 to 1997, serving as Director of the Board in 1997.
Christie was appointed U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey in 2002. As the chief federal law enforcement officer in New Jersey, Christie earned praise from leaders in both parties and drew national attention for his efforts in battling political corruption, corporate crime, human trafficking, gangs, terrorism and polluters. Christie led a widely acclaimed charge against public corruption. Regardless of party affiliation or political influence, when laws were broken, Christie took action. His office racked up an astonishing record - winning convictions or guilty pleas from over 130 public officials - both Republican and Democrat - without losing a single case.
The New York Times said Christie “won widespread admiration for his aggressive fight against political corruption.” And The Bergen Record wrote: “All New Jerseyans owe him a huge debt of gratitude for refusing to accept this state’s sleazy status quo.”
Upon Christie’s resignation on December 1, 2008, every major newspaper in the state applauded his term as New Jersey’s US Attorney. The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote: “Christie has already done more good for New Jersey than some previous governors. His office successfully prosecuted more than 130 public officials. And it has not lost a single corruption case.” And in a story headlined “Christie rewrote the book on prosecuting corruption,” Bob Braun of the Newark Star-Ledger concluded, “Christie…was creative, too - and aggressive.”
As Governor, Christie’s strong leadership and common-sense approach will bring the change New Jersey needs. The hallmarks of his tenure as US Attorney - eliminating waste and fraud, increasing governmental transparency, restoring honesty to government and returning hard-earned dollars to taxpayers - will be Chris’s focus as Governor in Trenton.
