Governor Jon S. Corzine Interviews and Forums

As we continue to build the Jon S. Corzine Archive, the Eagleton Center on the American Governor will conduct a growing body of interviews and forums looking back at the Corzine administration. The individual interviews will be with Governor Corzine as well as key members of his administration and others who interacted with it. The forums will be convened to focus on specific policy areas, crises and other events that defined the administration and offer lessons for current and future politics and governance.

These interviews and forums will be made available as video-recordings and written transcripts on this page as they are conducted. The first forum on Governor Corzine’s administration, featuring panels on the transition period and on the construction and passing of the first budget, is available now, at the link below.
