    Brooke:

    If, as we have been led to believe, the Fort Lee traffic issues arose from a traffic survey, then let's see the survey plan, authorization, data gathered and results. I don't believe that traffic surveys happen simply because transportation workers independently and arbitrarily decide to head out, block off lanes and count things. A presentation of the prior plan, its' intent and the resulting facts should support Governor Christie's position and vindicate him so that we can all move on.

    Thanks,

    If you were the govenor of New Jersy and you had a giant and mystereious traffic pile-up wreaking havoc with commerce to New York City that went on for days, wouldn't you think it would behoove you to find out what was causing it so it could be fixed? I don"t see any indication that he did that which makes me suspicious of his denials.
