About the Video Series: Big Issues in Government
The 2010 gubernatorial elections are quickly approaching. Due to term limits and departures, this election cycle is shaping up to be one of the most consequential state elections in decades. Many of the nation’s largest states from California to New York to Florida will see new governors in 2011. Due to the fiscal crisis and health care reform, this will likely be one of the most challenging transitions in decades.
As the nation and states prepare for potentially 25 new governors to take office in 2011, we asked a few of our senior government advisors — many of them former government leaders themselves — to share their perspectives on some of the biggest issues facing governments today. We invite you to view our Big Issues in Government video series to hear insights we believe government leaders should consider in their efforts to address state budget gaps, health care reform, health & human services reform, security, energy and more.
