The Home News Tribune covered Governor Christie Whitman’s pledge to leave her country better than she found it. She highlighted the need for an alternative to dysfunctional politics by encouraging citizens to get involved in their communities.
“The former governor urged all New Jerseyans to join her in “Taking the Pledge, and becoming part of a Civic Challenge to fix our broken politics and government.” In doing so, she joined Govs. Kean and Florio as major backers of the Civic Challenge.
“We know that Washington and Trenton alone can’t solve our problems,” Whitman said. “Citizens trained in no blame problem solving can add significant firepower and they can demand that same practical approach from elected officials from Town Hall to the Oval Office. That is why I urge all New Jerseyans to join me today in taking the Civic Pledge.”
