NUTLEY, NJ — New Jersey governor Chris Christie paid a visit to a Nutley elementary school on Tuesday as part of his recent crusade against opiate abuse, urging students to become active participants in the long-term solution to drug abuse.
The governor’s visit with sixth graders at Washington Elementary School in Nutley was facilitated by L.E.A.D., a non-profit organization that provides law enforcement with school-based drug prevention training and resources.
Christie, who recently announced that he was embarking on a statewide crusade against opiate addiction during his State of New Jersey address, encouraged L.E.A.D. students at the school to become active participants in the long-term solution to drug abuse both in New Jersey and across the country.
