Letters: Frustrated by bridge closing

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie delivers his State

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie delivers his State Of The State address at the Statehouse in Trenton, N.J. Christie apologized again, saying his administration "let down the people we are entrusted to serve" but that it doesn't define his team or the state. (Jan. 14, 2014) Credit: AP

I am writing in regard to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ["Citizens deserve better," News, Jan. 15].

I find it highly corrupt that it is possible for members of government to purposely cause traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee. And for what? Just so one Christie senior staff member could seek revenge.

I want to know what is going to be done to prevent another government official from frustrating many Americans. This is repulsive, and Christie had no clue his staff was doing such things?

I hope answers will come soon, because this is not government at work.

So it's the end of Gov. Chris Christie's political career because he didn't immediately admit to knowing about the bridge crossing problem? His staff, when he asked, denied having anything to do with.

I guess he needs a lie-detector policy to verify that every response he receives from his staff is the absolute truth!

I will give him the benefit of the doubt until it is proven that he is lying, too. If he is, then he needs to step down.
