NEW BRUNSWICK — Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s Hardball and author of Tip and the Gipper: When Politics Worked will be this year’s featured speaker at Rutgers University’s Louis J. Gambaccini Civic Engagement Series: Toward Better Citizenship. The Monday, Dec. 9, program will begin with a conversation between Matthews and Dr. Ruth B. Mandel, director of the Eagleton Institute of Politics, followed by questions from the audience.
The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Trayes Hall, Douglass Campus Center, 100 George Street, New Brunswick. It is free and open to the public, but attendees must RSVP at www.eagleton.rutgers.edu.
The Louis J. Gambaccini Civic Engagement Series has been established through the support of Lou Gambaccini’s family, friends and colleagues to honor his legacy in public service. The series is designed to promote civic engagement through an annual discussion of timely and enduring issues of great significance, with the objective of generating real civil discourse and action. Gambaccini, senior fellow emeritus at the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University’s Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, is a highly respected figure in New Jersey, perhaps best known for his role in creating New Jersey Transit, the nation’s first statewide public transit agency.
