TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Four New Jerseyans are on Time magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people.

They are Gov. Chris Christie, Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson and New Jersey Devils co-owner Ray Chambers.

Christie says being on the list is “good for New Jersey.” Speaking on Millennium Radio’s “Ask the Governor” program Thursday, Christie said his inclusion is “something really positive and it reflects well on our state.”

Jackson led the state’s Environmental protection Department before joining the EPA.

Chambers is a philanthropist whose work with Malaria No More has gained attention.
