Summary Me, Governor? is a chronicle of local and state government from a man who lived among political movers and shakers for more than three decades. Richard J. Codey succeeded James McGreevey who resigned as governor of New Jersey following a homosexual affair. At once a political autobiography, filled with lively, incisive anecdotes that record how Codey restored respectability and set a record for good politics and good government in a state so often tarnished, this is also the story about a man and his family.
