SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie made a special trip to help a New Jersey teen replace a damaged driver’s permit after his mother pleaded for help.

Christie escorted 17-year-old Isaac Pilato and his mother to the state Motor Vehicle Commission office in South Plainfield Thursday.

Stacey Pilato called into Christie’s monthly “Ask the Governor” radio show on New Jersey’s 101.5 FM Wednesday night and told Christie she has no luck replacing the permit that got damaged in the wash when her son left it in his jeans.

She told the governor she went to five MVC locations and couldn’t get a replacement.

Christie initially joked he should have the MVC commissioner deliver the permit. But then the governor decided to go. The governor told the woman “we may actually get some action here.”
