A Career in American Politics

A Career in American Politics

Governor Christine Todd Whitman 

Governor Whitman served in the cabinet of President George W. Bush as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency from January of 2001 until June of 2003. She was the 50th Governor of the State of New Jersey, serving from 1994 until 2001 as its first woman governor. Whitman is interviewed about her extensive experience in government and where she feels contemporary politics has gone wrong. Whitman focuses on her time as director of the EPA and environmental issues in the Republican Party.

This talk was proposed by Nick Stolte and is sponsored by the Eshleman Endowed Lectureship, College Republicans, the Sustainability Center, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and the Government Department.
