New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be leading the Ridgewood Fourth of July Parade, sources told Patch Saturday.

According to two village officials, the Republican governor will be making a brief speech during the flag raising portion of the ceremony in the morning.

Christie and his family will be riding in the first division of the parade along with Ridgewood officials, the Fourth of July Committee said Monday. He's the first governor to appear in the 103rd annual parade since Christie Todd Whitman.

A Christie spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.

The governor's addition to the annual parade shouldn't come as much of a surprise – he arrives in town on July 3 for a Republican fundraiser at the iconic Bank of America Building on East Ridgewood Avenue.

Christie said he was going to lower taxes, he failed, he was booed along the entire parade. He is a fraud and will not be elected.

@ridgewood mom... don't agree with his tact on teachers but the teachers are ill served by their high priced reps...when he went after the police unions they matched his volleys with their own and he backed down quickly... that's politics.... the teachers should get rid of the amateurs representing them (who the rank and file keep in their high paid perches) and get real flacks, which they can do for less than they're paying the kahunas representing them now...

Thanks Kerry just watched the video, wow that's your example, he asked reporters to stay on topic, and the reporter could not do it, must be nice living in your world of candy canes and popsicles where everybody gets along.

and the bottom line is, a great parade... nicely done yet again...

Calling him a stupid idiot is not necessary and beneath his position and his education. But you seem to like that kind of stuff so to each his own.
