New Jersey’s most favorite recent Governor was Tom Kean according to a new survey from Public Policy Polling. It was runaway with Governor Kean getting 43% of the response. The second place favorite Governor was Christie Todd Whitman with 19% of the people polled.
Who was Kean’s first Deputy Chief of Staff again? It was independent New Jersey Gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett.
According to Daggett’s campaign biography, “After Kean’s election as Governor in 1981, Chris (Daggett) served as his deputy chief of staff… (after becoming the Regional Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency)… In 1988, Daggett rejoined to the Kean administration as Commissioner of the state Department of Environmental Protection.”
Chris Daggett was twice hired buy the most popular New Jersey Governor of the past 25 years. This is something that candidate Daggett must mention and play-up. Currently Kean is on-board with team Christie, but that does not change the past.
