Christie and the kids

Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie will speak Monday morning at Morris Knolls High School in Rockaway.

Wonder how many students are old enough to vote.

    FYI, Morris Knolls is in Denville. I wonder if Bill Chegwidden had some role in arranging this visit. It doesn’t matter if the kids are too young to vote, because it’s still a good way to teach them to get involved with politics. Then when they’re old enough to vote, they’ll actually care enough to do so. Will the other Republican candidates or Corzine be given equal time?

  2. Actually, the official address is Rockaway.
    I thought it was Denville too.
    The more important point is, as you note, if the school allows Christie, it has to allow other candidates as well.

    Rick Merkt could do double duty by lecturing the students as they all jog around the track together. That way, no one would have to miss gym class to hear him speak.

    Fred – How many time did you complain in 2008 when Barack Obama campaigned at a school?

  5. I didn’t think I was complaining. .

    Read what I wrote: I just stated the fact and wondered how many kids are 18, That’s because Chris’ speech would have more meaning to those old enough to vote.

    I asked a friend that teaches in Morristown about how many kids are 18 in the high School, He said about 50% of the kids will graduate at the age of 18 one June 23. So Fred about 50% of the kids would be able to vote.
