Governor Christine Gregoire was honored this month by Governing Magazine as one of the nation’s top public officials. The Governor actually appears on the cover of the November issue which singles out nine prominent leaders around the nation for their transformational impact on their respective public organizations. Gregoire was the only governor to make the list.
Governing Magazine mentioned Gregoire’s Government Management Accountability Program known as “GMAP” and her “negotiator-in-chief” style of dealing with tough problems. She plans to personally attend the award ceremony in Washington, D.C. next Wednesday.
