* A Pritzker transition spokesperson says the governor-elect was in attendance…
Several of the nation’s newly elected governors, including Colorado’s Jared Polis, were gathered over the weekend at The Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs at a National Governors Association meeting.
The “Seminar for New Governors” was off-limits to the press and public. […]
The weekend-long gathering was intended to be a “boot camp” to help incoming state chief executives to prepare for their new jobs.
“This is an attempt to give them a little bit more … practical exposure to some of the challenges and opportunities that past governors have dealt with as they’ve taken office,” James Nash, a spokesman for the NGA, told KRCC.
Pritzker attended Friday through Sunday, I’m told.
Our last few governors tended to avoid these sorts of seminars, so I take this as a decent sign.
