NGA's Sue Gander, Excerpted

National Governors Association’s Sue Gander, in “Smarter States Smarter Communities Initiative,” page 12, February 11 special issue of Public Utilities Fortnightly:

“It’s going to be an exciting time in terms of states moving ahead on a smart agenda, particularly as we have 22 new governors taking office this year. In October, NGA sponsored a learning lab in Illinois, where they were able to demonstrate some great outcomes from their work with our first cohort of five states – Colorado, Nevada, North Dakota, New Jersey and Virginia.

NGA will be hosting a panel on Smarter States for all the governors when they are together in February, for our winter meeting in Washington, D.C. That will be an opportunity for all governors to hear about what’s already been taking place. It’s going to be a dynamic conversation about the benefits, opportunities and challenges of becoming a smarter state. We will be helping governors learn about actions that they can take as champions and policy leaders.”
