CAA New Jersey: Gubernatorial Event

East Hanover, NJ
The Wharton Club of NJ has invited us to join them for an upcoming NJ Gubernatorial event. In November, New Jersey voters will go to the polls to elect our next Governor. Will it be Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno or Wharton alum and former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy? Hearing from the candidates directly, rather than through soundbites and summaries in the media, is the best way to make up one’s own mind. We have teamed up with the Wharton Club of NJ and have invited both candidates to appear to address questions from attendees.
