Christie Apologizes to NJ Mayor for Traffic Jams
By AP
FORT LEE, NJ - Gov. Chris Christie has apologized in person to the mayor of a northern New Jersey community that was the victim of apparently politically inspired traffic jams.

Christie says that he had a "very good, productive meeting'' late Thursday at the Fort Lee municipal building with Mayor Mark Sokolich and that the mayor accepted his apology.

Sokolich had earlier urged the governor not to make the trip until all investigations were complete.

Christie also publicly apologized at a Trenton news conference Thursday morning after emails seemed to show a top aide wanted highway lanes near the George Washington Bridge closed in September because the mayor wasn't endorsing Christie. Christie fired the aide.

Christie says his administration has to work to regain the trust of Fort Lee residents.

Sokolich did not comment after the meeting.
