JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Five high-ranking New Jersey officials and one from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey canceled meetings with a city’s new mayor last year and offered no explanation, documents released by town officials show.
Steve Fulop, the Democratic mayor of Jersey City, says he believes the commissioners decided not to meet with him in July because he declined to endorse Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s re-election bid.
As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, the introductory meeting was arranged by Christie’s former deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly. Christie announced he’d fired Kelly in a Thursday press conference.
