Making the case for Jim McGreevey — NJ’s greatest governor (OPINION)
James E. McGreevey doesn't get a lot of love from New Jersey voters.
Rounding out the least favorable governors in New Jersey in a Monmouth University poll, McGreevey comes in third worst — with only Jon Corzine and Chris Christie trailing behind. Tom Kean stands out as most admired.
Yet, Jim says McGreevey is the one recent governor who actually made a difference in the lives of New Jerseyans. He cleaned up Easypass. He helped get car insurance (though still sky-high) under control). The DMV became the MVC, and with the change, faded many of the bureaucratic nightmares that haunted New Jersey drivers.
"Here is James E. McGreevey, who left under snickering terms," Jim says — and yet, he's the one with a list of accomplishments that we benefit from to thi9s day.
And that's just part of what Jim takes on in the latest installment of his podcast. Check out the full episode to hear the rest. And Email Jim at Jim@NJ1015.com.
