Mrs. Christie launched an initiative called New Jersey Heroes at Drumthwacket on Wednesday, December 8th. In conjunction with the release of this website, Mrs. Christie asks New Jersey residents to submit their own local heroes that she will showcase every month on the website. The New Jersey Heroes initiative was started at the Governor’s inauguration, when four New Jersey Heroes were showcased. Various groups and organizations that Mrs. Christie has visited since her time as First Lady were at Wednesday’s launch event and four special heroes were recognized: Kate Dowd from GlassRoots, Inc., John King from Center for Educational Advancement, Gerry Marcus from Morristown Neighborhood House, and Beverly Gordon from Project Self-Sufficiency. Steve Adubato, Jr. was Master of Ceremonies.
