Former Governor Chris Christie recently settled a late parking ticket in Jersey City, prompting Mayor Steven Fulop to offer his perspective on the matter. The incident, which gained attention when the New Jersey Globe reported that a vehicle registered to Christie was 10 days overdue in paying a $50 parking fine, quickly found resolution after the reporter contacted the ex-governor.
While Christie’s vehicle had been ticketed for failing to relocate during street cleaning, the specific purpose of his visit to the vicinity, or whether he himself was behind the wheel of the gray Audi registered under his name, remains unclear.
However, the mention of a nearby candy shop in the initial report appears to be unrelated and somewhat speculative, devoid of substantial evidence.
Mayor Steven Fulop, currently in the running for the governor’s seat, seized the opportunity to weigh in on the incident later in the day.
