Gov. Chris Christie’s former top Port Authority appointee who ultimately resigned from the post following the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy is back to work.
Bill Baroni, the former deputy director of the Port Authority, took a position with Hill Wallack LLP, a prominent Democratic law firm in the Garden State.
Baroni, a former state senator, resigned from the Port Authority in December. He was the second top official to leave the agency following the release of the now infamous “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee” correspondence that was unearthed from documents subpoenaed by a legislative investigative committee.
"Yes,” said Bob Bacso, managing partner of the firm’s Princeton office. “I am pleased to confirm that.”
Baroni is working for the firm’s Princeton office.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
