Governors Janet Napolitano and Kathleen Sebelius have used pragmatic, common-sense leadership to move their states forward on energy, education and a host of other issues that benefit the common good. Their ability to build coalitions across partisan and ideological lines has allowed them to implement effective progressive policies that improve the lives of their constituents. That’s one reason each enjoys broad support within their states, and it’s why they represent a new generation of strong, progressive female leaders.
Please join the Center for American Progress for a conversation with these remarkable governors as they discuss approaches to effective progressive governance that transcend political ideology and work for the common good.
