Inside Politics: Current Events and American Policy
Christine Todd Whitman
Former Governor of New Jersey and Administrator of the EPA

Christine Todd Whitman will speak about her work to create a movement of moderates to become activists and return the Republican Party to its traditional centrist roots.

In January 2005, Whitman published "It's My Party, Too: The Battle for the Heart of the GOP and the Future of America," where she argues that "social fundamentalists" have moved the Republican Party far right and away from core party values.

Whitman is president of The Whitman Strategy Group, a management consulting/strategic planning partnership servicing both government and business clients. She served as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency from January 2001 to June 2003, and governor of New Jersey from 1994 to 2001.

Whitman currently serves on the Board of Directors of S.C. Johnson and Son, Inc., Texas Instruments, United Technologies and The Millennium Challenge Corporation.

Whitman is co-chairman of the National Smart Growth Council and serves on the Steering Committee of The Cancer Institute of New Jersey; the Leadership Council of the Republican Pro-Choice Coalition; the Governing Board of the Oquirrh Institute; and as a member of the board of the New America Foundation. She is also a member of the newly formed Center for Civic Engagement and Volunteerism Advisory Board at Raritan Valley Community College.
