New Jersey Governor Chris Christie endorsed Republican candidate Michael Fedele for Mayor of Stamford Tuesday according to Fedele's campaign.
“I’m pleased to endorse Michael Fedele for Mayor of Stamford because Mike is a leader who understands what makes cities like Stamford successful,” Christie said. “He knows that keeping taxes low, building coalitions and working in collaboration with the community is the way to accomplish great things.
“Mike isn’t afraid to step across party lines to get things done,” Christie said. “His public service has been marked by putting the community’s best interests first – and that’s the best kind of public servant. Mike Fedele would make an outstanding mayor.”
“I am proud to receive Governor Christie’s endorsement,” Fedele said. “He is one of the strongest leaders in America, and New Jersey residents are fortunate to have – and have benefited from -- his leadership in countless ways and in good and bad times.”
Governor Chris Christie was sworn in as New Jersey's 55th Governor on January 19, 2010. Governor Christie has lived in New Jersey his entire life and now lives in Mendham with his wife, Mary Pat, and their four children.
