The argument over the covid-19 crisis and recovery seems to be governed by the extremes. Some believe that this is exclusively a medical judgment — that until we can guarantee safety for virtually every American, we must keep our country on some form of lockdown. Then there are states such as Georgia, where the governor seems to believe that opening nail salons now is a national imperative without regard to the known risks. Neither is right.
The Christie Institute for Public Policy, a not-for-profit foundation founded by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Seton Hall University School of Law announced an agreement that will provide educational and financial support for students of the School of Law. The Institute also has launched The Christie Institute for Public Policy Lecture Series, which will host quarterly national and international discussions on nonpartisan issues of consequence and importance to our society. Seton Hall students, faculty, administrators and alumni will participate in the events. To date, the Institute has hosted a discussion with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo at Seton Hall Law School and will host a discussion with former Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger.
Former-Gov. Chris Christie’s alma mater, Seton Hall University School of Law, and the nonprofit Christie Institute for Public Policy are officially teaming up, a spokesperson for the former governor announced Tuesday. The nonprofit plans to donate money toward at least one scholarship or fund to pay off loans for Seton Hall Law students “who aspire to careers in public interest or public service.”
Former Gov. Chris Christie’s non-profit Christie Institute for Public Policy has formally teamed up with his alma mater, Seton Hall University School of Law, a spokeswoman for the former governor said. The partnership was announced Tuesday, about four months after Christie kicked off the initiative with a question-and-answer session with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Seton Hall students looking to get into public service may be eligible for financial support under a new agreement between the university's law school and former Gov. Chris Christie's policy institute, the two were expected to announce Tuesday. The Christie Institute for Public Policy, a nonprofit launched last year, plans to donate money toward one or more scholarships or a fund to repay loans for Seton Hall Law students 'who aspire to careers in public interest or public service', according to a joint announcement.
Thursday was the inaugural night for the newly-created Chris Christie Institute for Public Policy at Seton Hall University in Newark, and Christie chose New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo as his first guest. Although from different parties — Christie a Republican and Cuomo a Democrat — both leaders spoke about how they worked closely together, bridging any ideological divide.
Former Gov. Chris Christie defended President Trump and bashed Congressional Democrats as not credible on Thursday, saying the phone call that made the president the target of a near-certain impeachment inquiry was just Trump being Trump. Christie’s defense of the Trump administration had its limits — the former governor said a whistle-blower complaint that was released to the public on Thursday deserves to be investigated — but Christie said he’s convinced that the content of Trump’s phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky was not unusual.
It was a night about getting along. On one side was former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the Democrat, sat to his left. There wasn’t a jab thrown. Instead, the hour-long session Christie moderated was filled with stories of working together, a willingness to reach across the political aisle — and a bunch of laughs.
