Chris Christie served two terms as Governor of the State of New Jersey, taking on the biggest and toughest challenges with real solutions and bipartisan cooperation. He implemented an aggressive reform agenda to restore fiscal sanity, lower property taxes, reign in the state’s pension and health benefits system, expand school choice, and address the opioid epidemic. Governor Christie led the state’s recovery after Superstorm Sandy - the worst natural disaster in its history - rebuilding the state’s housing, infrastructure and public schools and setting an example for bipartisan leadership. As a Republican, he was re-elected with 60% of the vote in one of the bluest states in the country.
In 2017, Governor Christie was appointed Chairman of the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis. The Commission’s final report contained more than 65 substantive recommendations, all of which were adopted by President Trump.
Prior to his time as Governor, he was nominated by President George W. Bush for U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, where he served for seven years, bringing high profile anti-terrorism cases and successfully prosecuting 130 political corruption cases.
Governor Christie and his wife of 37 years, Mary Pat, have four children, Andrew, Sarah, Patrick, and Bridget.
