- Christie among the lucky few with state-owned vacation homes

Most governors couldn't get caught in a brouhaha like the one surrounding Gov. Chris Christie, because New Jersey is one of only a handful of states with a state-owned vacation home for its chief executive.Christie was criticized for sunning himself with his family at Island Beach State Park, which was closed to the public because the Republican initiated a government shutdown.In 1953, the state purchased the Phipps estate and additional land to preserve the island's natural beauty and create a recreation area.The house is being renovated with BP grant money left over from the 2010 Gulf oil spill, and the state has said it plans to use the mansion for economic development events once the work is done.The Michigan governor's summer residence on Mackinac Island is a three-story home on a bluff overlooking the Straits of Mackinac.A nonprofit group rents out the house and grounds to dozens of civic organizations through the year, generating income that leaves taxpayers responsible for about half the $15,500 annual maintenance costs.
