New Jersey’s governor says size doesn’t matter.

Chris Christie told interviewer Barbara Walters in her “10 Most Fascinating People of 2012” special that his weight won’t be a factor in deciding whether or not he’ll run for president.

Christie admitted to being heavy but he says it’s not stopping him from doing a good job as governor.

He cited his 18-hour days following Superstorm Sandy as evidence of his ability to work well despite his weight.

He also told Walters that his size would never stop him from a chance to run for president.

Right now, he’s prepping for a re-election bid in Trenton and is rumored to be considering a run for the White House in 2016.

    On Monday we went from no water to no hot water in a matter of hours. It is now Thursday morning, No Hot Water signs are throughout the building, and we are still forced to boil water to wash our face or bathe. This is consistent with this build and the rent is steadily increasing. This is ridiculous! There are elderly and small children throughout this building. Every other week management are always making some repairs to the boiler. As a result, we are always without hot water. It is freezing outside and the heat isn’t on. Additionally, most apartments have heat. Collectively we call our building management, Manhattan North Management Company, 212-996-0200, as well as 311 but the problem still persist. Please help us!

    I am a tenant at UPACA site 7 and our address is 1900 Lexington Avenue between 118th and 119th streets and Lexington Avenue.

    They have money to build store fronts under our building but not to replace a boiler. Enough is enough!
