Christie Aide Fired Over Traffic Spent Decade in Politics

Bridget Anne Kelly, the aide to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie who was fired yesterday after ordering traffic congestion in a city whose mayor didn’t endorse her boss, rose to work in the state’s top office after more than 10 years in local politics.

A mother of four and resident of Ramsey, a New York suburb, the 41-year-old Kelly joined the administration in 2010, Christie’s first year in office, according to a biography since removed from the governor’s website. She was previously president of the Ramsey Republican Club and an aide to Republican state Assemblyman Dave Russo.
