Governor Jim McGreevey

Election Day Special with Governor Jim McGreevey

“Just give a damn and get involved!”

As thousands of New Jerseyians race to the polls to pick our next governor today, those words by former Governor Jim McGreevey pack a meaningful punch.  

On Election Day, #HipNJ‘s Armand V. Cucciniello III sat with the trailblazing politician at Porto Leggero in Jersey City. Over meatballs and ravioli (the Governor’s favorite!) they talked about the state’s opioid crisis, his work with the New Jersey Reentry Corporation and that one day in 2004 that changed the political landscape forever.
