For a second time, winter weather has led Gov. Chris Christie to postpone Tuesday's town hall meeting in Middletown.

Initially set for Feb. 13, the town hall was rescheduled for Tuesday following a state of emergency declaration. Christie also decided Monday night to delay the openings of state offices on Tuesday due to the looming forecast.

Tuesday would have been Christie's 110th town hall, a signature of his, as governor and the first since the George Washington Bridge scandal erupted. The administration's plans for its latest round of federal Superstorm Sandy recovery funds were to be discussed.

Also expected to join Christie were several cabinet members including Department of Community Affairs commissioner Richard Constable, Department of Environmental Protection commissioner Bob Martin, Department of Human Services commissioner Jennifer Velez and Economic Development Authority CEO Michele Brown.

Though administration members were set to meet with Sandy-impacted residents to answer questions, the town hall did not offer media availability. Christie has yet to go before reporters since a nearly two-hour news conference on Jan. 9.

Information regarding the town hall's rescheduling is expected later Tuesday.
