Symposium focuses on New Jersey sports, April 20

"New Jersey and Sports: A Strikeout or Homerun? An Investigation of the Social, Economic and Environmental Ramifications of Sports in New Jersey" is the topic to be debated at the University's annual Symposium on New Jersey Issues Friday, April 20.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall. There is no charge for this program, but registration is required.

The symposium will feature the following presenters: Michael Danielson, Princeton professor of public affairs and author of "Home Team: Professional Sports and the American Metropolis"; James DiEleuterio Jr., president and chief executive officer of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority; Rick Brenner, general manager of the Trenton Thunder; Bob Prunetti, Mercer County executive; and several state legislators.

Sponsored by the Office of Community and State Affairs and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, the symposium focuses on topics of interest to New Jersey legislators. Organizers launched the program five years ago in celebration of the University's 250th anniversary and Princeton's historic connection to the state of New Jersey.
