Drug Court Bill Signing Press Conference. July 19, 2012 (Transcript Below)

Governor Christie: Once again this piece of legislation is an example of the type of bipartisan compromise that we can all reach on issues that are extraordinarily important to people across this state. This bipartisanship is also appreciated by the folks who this affects on a day-to-day basis. One of the people who brought this into even greater focus for me is here today, Cassandra Dock is here standing behind me and I want to thank her for coming to my town hall meetings—you slipped away, didn't you? You were behind me, weren't you? You can sit down then. Cassandra's obviously tired, wants a seat, but Cassandra came to one of my town hall meetings and raised these issues with me in public, and I told her that I wanted to discuss them with her at a subsequent meeting with her and other citizens of the city of Newark who are being affected by violence and the drug abuse that comes along with that issue, and we have kept in regular contact since then, and this is proof that things can actually get done, not only from leaders of government but also by regular citizens who decide they want to engage their government, and she came to the town hall, engaged her government—I don't know if she was expecting to get a meeting that day but she was and when she did, and I want to thank her for being a voice in her community and now across this state.
