Had he been successful in his campaign for governor in New Jersey last year, Chris Daggett today would face the task of trying to balance the budget of a state that is lurching toward bankruptcy. Instead he'll be heading a national foundation that gives away money to good causes.
The former NJ DEP Commissioner and regional EPA Administrator was named today as president and CEO of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.
Since 2004, Daggett has been a principal with JM Sorge, Inc., a New Jersey-based environmental consulting and management firm where he assisted in the development and implementation of a nonprofit seminar program to help children’s day care facility leaders understand and address new environmental oversight regulations.
Daggett also assisted Sorge's public clients in purchasing, remediating and preserving more than 600 acres of state and federal land, and helped develop the company's new Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program.
Although his 2009 run for governor was unsuccessful, Daggett had the distinction of being the first independent candidate to raise the threshold amount of money to qualify for public matching funds and to participate in public debates with the major party candidates.
