Boy, 5, Gets His Wish to Be Governor of N.J.
Filed under: In The News
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made Jesse Koczon, 5, of Old Bridge, N.J., honorary governor for a day April 6, after watching a clip of the boy crying "because I want to be the governor, and I can't."
Jesse's twin brother, Brandon, not to be left out, was named honorary lieutenant governor.
Asked what his first order of business would be, Jesse responded: "Maybe tell the lieutenant governor what to do."
Jesse's video won $10,000 on "America's Funniest Home Videos" last year.
