Christie will hold his 122nd town hall meeting in Haddon Heights on June 25, the Governor's Office announced Thursday afternoon.

Christie will appear at the Atlantic Avenue School in the gymnasium at 11:30 a.m. The school is located at 21 East Atlantic Avenue.

Residents can RSVP to TownHall.HaddonHeights@gov.state.nj.us. Doors open at 10 a.m. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis and open to the public.

No bags of any kind are permitted in the venue and personal items are subject to search. Due to safety requirements, law enforcement officers will be in attendance and will wand all attendees.

Christie said he will discuss "the need for additional pension and health benefits reform and making the choice to not sacrifice the priorities that matter most to our state."

During his budget speech earlier this year, Christie said that a law he and Sen. President Stephen Sweeney helped pass in 2011 is preventing the state from putting more financial effort into spending on education, colleges and transportation, among other needs.

That legislation increases contributions from public employees to pension and healthcare.

Christie has proposed cutting funding intended for public workers' pensions, but State Senate Democrats have rejected that idea and introduced their own budget plan earlier this week.
