The New Jersey Reporter was a respected and influential “monthly journal of public issues” that published from 1977 until 2001. The magazine had a relatively small circulation in the 3000-5000 range but was well-read and often much-discussed within the state’s public policy and governmental communities. Created by the Princeton-based non-profit Center for Analysis of Public Issues, the New Jersey Reporter had only five editors in its 24 years: Tom O’Neill from 1977-1984, Rick Sinding from 1984-1990, Alice Chasan in 1990, Neil Upmeyer from 1990-1998 and Mark Magyar from 1998-2001.
The monthly magazine included in-depth articles, short items of news and commentary, and columns by various New Jersey reporters and analysts on a wide spectrum of state political and public issues issues, events and personalities.
The Center on the American Governor has reproduced here many items from the New Jersey Reporter‘s 24 years that were focused on individual governors. They are accessible below under the headings of Governors and Columnists, with cross-listings where appropriate. Articles are organized by topic within each governor’s section.
