Eagleton at the New Jersey League of Municipalities
Each November, the Arthur J. Holland Program on Ethics in Government Workshop is held at the New Jersey League of Municipalities' (NJLM) annual convention in Atlantic City. The focal point for the 2019 Holland Workshop,  How Close are You to Being Falsely Prosecuted? A Cautionary Story,  was based on a new book,  Politically Indicted: The Real Story Behind the Jersey Sting,  written by Ridgefield Borough Mayor Anthony Suarez. 

Eagleton associate director John Weingart delivered opening remarks and Madison Borough Mayor Robert Conley presided over the session. Mayors Anthony Suarez of Ridgefield Borough and Keith Balla of Watchung Borough also participated.

While at NJLM, Weingart, who also serves as the director of the Eagleton Center on the American Governor, moderated a panel of former New Jersey governors who discussed the Murphy Administration's second year. The session was titled, Murphy's Marks: Year Two.

Rutgers-Eagleton Poll Director To Present About Future of Survey Research Methodology
Dr. Ashley Koning, Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling director, and Dr. Krista Jenkins, director of the Fairleigh Dickinson University Poll, will present the results of a joint survey experiment at the Pennsylvania/New Jersey chapter of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (PANJAAPOR) annual winter meeting.

The polling industry is facing issues with declining response rates and skyrocketing costs. In a response to this change, statewide polls, like the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll are exploring online capabilities and other methods in order to accurately survey the public. The joint experiment utilized phone, online probability samples, and online nonprobability samples at the state level to test the effects of both survey mode and type of sample on statewide public opinion polling. 

Those interested in attending the presentation at Princeton University on Wednesday, December 4th can register online.
