State parks and beaches were closed this weekend, disappointing many over the holiday weekend due to a government shutdown. Island Beach State Park was one of the state parks and beaches to close…to everyone except Chris Christie and his family. Aerial photos from NJ.com show Christie and company enjoying the summer beach house provided by the state. Maybe when your approval ratings hit historic lows, anything goes?
When asked about those criticizing his use of the beach, Christie said in a telephone interview to Fox 29 in Philadelphia, “I’m sorry they’re not the governor.”
What do you think of Christie’s beach day? And read how NJ.com’s Andrew Mills got the amazing photos.
