All dreams can be realized. If you’re lucky! Jesse Koczon, 5 years old boy knows what he wants to be and he doesn’t want to wait until he grows up. His dream has become true – he became governor of New Jersey for a day.
Jesse is recorded on tape crying when he learns he is too young to be the next Governor of New Jersey. The video, recorded by Jesse and Brandon’s mother Dawn Koczon shows the twins travelling in the back seat of their family car with Jesse constantly crying. When asked why he was upset, Jesse says, “Cause everyone tells me I’m too small to be the governor of New Jersey.”
Gov. Chris Christie, real governor of New Jersey and father of four, wields the power not only to line-item veto the state budget, but also, on occasion, to grant wishes. When he saw the video, he was compelled to act.
“I’ve been in that scene when you have your kids just going wild in the back of the car,” he said in a video released by his staff. “I related to it as a dad. I actually went home and I showed Mary Pat the video on YouTube. … She said, ‘You’re inviting them in, right?’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’ ”
Christie’s first response to Jesse came via Twitter on March 31.
“Don’t worry Jesse, people gave plenty of reasons why I couldn’t be governor, though being too small wasn’t one of them,” Christie wrote.
With the five years Jesse became governor, what we can expect when he grows?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xKQsmqTWpI
