FORT LEE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie met with Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich Thursday afternoon, in the wake of a scandal in which residents of the borough were beset by traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge as apparent political payback.
Christie arrived at Fort Lee Borough Hall around 4:10 p.m. and left about 45 minutes later. He met with Sokolich, along with the mayor’s wife and teenage son, CBS 2’s Tony Aiello reported.
Speaking following the meeting, Christie called it, “a very warm and productive meeting between me and the mayor.” When asked what he said, Christie added: “I apologized. That’s what I came here to do.”
