Town Hall Meeting in West Milford - October 16, 2012 (Transcript Below)

Governor Christie: It's not about me. That's not about me. It's about you. It's about you. It's about all of you feeling once again like we're in this together, that we're going to fight for the things that are wrong and try to fix them, but that we're also going to fight for each other and stand up for each other, that there are so many great things about this state that we shouldn't feel bad about ourselves. We shouldn't feel diminished. Yeah, we've got challenges. So does every other state. We've also got lots of great people here.

So when I talk about these fights that we need to have, it's not like I said in the video, it's not just because I'm looking for a fight. Some days. But not most days. I'm fighting for this stuff because it matters, because it's going to make a difference to us and to our kids and to our grandkids as we go forward. It doesn't mean we're going to win every fight. But what I know is you can't win the fight unless you're in the fight. And what I've been so heartened by over the last three years is that you've been willing to be in the fight with me, and we're doing this together, and the state's getting better because we're working together to do it.

And so you've given me the greatest honor and privilege I'll ever have in my life, to be the governor of the state where you were born and raised. Man, I will tell you, I walk into that Statehouse every day, and I walk in that door. It has my name on it; it says Governor. And I shake my head and I say how the hell did this happen?

And if you're standing outside that door some day when you come to Trenton and you're really quiet, and you listen down the hall for the Democrats in the Legislature, they're saying the same thing. How the hell did this happen?
