Alvin Felzenberg talked about his biography, Governor Tom Kean: From the New Jersey Statehouse to the 9-11 Commission, published by Rutgers University Press. Mr. Felzenberg was the principal spokesman for the 9-11 Commission and for its nonprofit successor organization, the 9-11 Public Discourse Project. Governor Kean was the chairman of both organizations. Mr. Felzenberg also served as Governor Kean’s Assistant Secretary of State for New Jersey. In his presentation Mr. Felzenberg argued that it is unusual for such a loyal Republican to be so successful as a leader during the time of a Democratic Congress and Republican president. Mr. Felzenberg argued that it was Governor Kean’s successful bipartisan skills that enabled him to lead the 9-11 Commission in spite of deep partisan divisions. He further examined Governor Kean’s successes in redistricting in accordance with the “one man, one vote” principle, his revitalization of urban areas in New Jersey that were destroyed by the 1967 riots, and his leadership in support of the environment and education in New Jersey. After his presentation Mr. Felzenberg responded to audience members' questions. close
