Gov. Christie: The Rest Of My Time Here Is Not Going To Be A Walk; There’s Still A Lot To Do
Governor Christie: Oh no. Second semester of my senior year was a complete walk. Yeah, so, I didn’t do much of anything second semester of senior year in college. So no, I wish it felt like that but it doesn’t. The fact is I’ve got a lot of things to do and you’ll be seeing them over the course of next number of months. The Legislature is only a small part of the duty of the Governor. Now, when they’re here, they dominate most of your time but when they’re gone, it’s not like, you know, Michael just alluded to, I can’t take the rest of the summer off. There’s lots of things for me to do. I’ll be public a number of times this week on a number of issues. And there’s lots of things I want to do from a policy perspective, from a regulatory perspective, and an implementation perspective of policies that we’ve put forward and have been approved by the Legislature in those areas that need to be approved that now as the Executive I have the obligation to implement. All those things are things that I’ll be doing. So no, it doesn’t feel like second semester senior year. Second semester senior year I think I had three classes and one of them was a senior thesis class. So no, that was a lot easier than this going to be. Well, I’m not going to tell you now, Peter, because if I tell you now then you won’t come out to the incredible events that Amanda and I are going to be throwing over the course the next number of months. So I don’t want to do that to you. I want you to be surprised when you get that little, you know, schedule advisory over your email, and be excited about the next thing that we’re going to be talking about. And I don’t want to do anything to quell your excitement. I’m trying to decrease cynicism and enhance joy and that’s what I’m going to attempt to do for you over the summer.
