Dreams Do Come True of the Day: “Cry and you shall receive” probably isn’t the best lesson to teach a five-year-old, but maybe just this once: According to the Wall Street Journal, New Jersey governor Chris Christie will sign a proclamation today making Jesse Koczon — the then-three-year-old who was teased for being too small to be New Jersey’s governor — an honorary governor for a day.
Christie will also give Jesse and his family a personal tour of the governor’s office. “[We’re] the luckiest kids ever,” Jesse’s brother Brandon exclaimed. Jesse, however, might disagree: His mom says he no longer wants to be governor and instead plans on becoming a rock star.
