Tom Ridge and Janet Napolitano: The Politicization of the Bureaucracy – A Troubling Precedent
Federal agencies have been used in unintended ways. These two former Secretaries of DHS discuss the misappropriation of these resources.
Gov. Tom Ridge was the first Secretary of Homeland Security which was formed after 9/11. He has served as the two term governor of Pennsylvania and as a six term congressman from the state.
Gov. Napolitano served as Secretary of Homeland Security during President Obama’s first term. She was twice elected governor of Arizona and recently completed her tenure as the president of the University of California system (2013-2020).
