Gov. Chris Christie is giving the Legislature a report card full of incompletes and failing grades one day before New Jersey voters go the polls for school elections.

Speaking at a town hall meeting in Hamilton in Mercer County Tuesday, Christie chastised what he called the "do-nothing Legislature" for not moving on his proposals to overhaul the state's pension and health care systems.

The governor also criticized lawmakers for not giving his office more control over state boards and authorities.

Christie drew applause when he said the Legislature should have moved school board elections to November so more people could vote.

Assembly Democratic spokesman Tom Hester Jr. says Christie should stop his "immature whining" and start protecting working class residents.
