On Tuesday, Jan. 16, the William D. Ruckelshaus Center and the Slade Gorton International Policy Center featured former Washington State Governors Daniel Evans, Christine Gregoire, and Gary Locke, at their fifth annual joint luncheon.

The luncheon was titled “Statespersonship from the Governor’s Mansion: A New Role for the States,” featured a discussion moderated by Renee Radcliff Sinclair of TVW.

The former governors reflected on their views and personal experiences in governing the state, and how the balance of power and leadership between state governments and the federal government may be changing.

The event can be viewed on the Ruckelshaus Center site or the TVW website.

The Ruckleshaus Center is a joint effort of WSU Extension and the University of Washington Evans School of Public Policy and Governance.
