As part of its work to study the roles, power, and legacies of American governors, the Eagleton Center on the American Governor (ECAG) has built a video archive of former New Jersey governors and their administrations. The archive, a resource for students and scholars across the country, released three new interviews of former Corzine Administration officials speaking about their experiences.

Kevin Ryan
Commissioner of Department of Human Services (2006) and Commissioner of Department of Children and Families (2006-2008)

"Jon kept faith on that promise to create a focused entity, the Department of Children and Families, so 7,000 employees came over with me and we focused on creating a system that was designed to protect the welfare of children who were at risk in New Jersey." - Kevin Ryan
Lucille Davy
Commissioner of Department of Education (2006-2010)

"Whenever I went to him on anything, whatever policy, whatever decision we were making, [Governor Corzine] would just always say to me, 'Is this what's best for children?'" - Lucille Davy

Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development (2006-2010)

"I want to say, [paid family leave insurance] is one of the real legacies of Governor Corzine's administration. It is a tremendous success, and one that I am so honored to have been able to be a part of getting done." - David Socolow

The real constitutional crisis: We forgot what it means to be an American
The Hill published an op-ed written by Eagleton director John J. Farmer Jr., titled, "The real constitutional crisis: We forgot what it means to be an American."
