Successful governorships rely not just on giving good speeches and recruiting a fine Cabinet. They also critically depend on organizing the Governor's office and relations with the Cabinet, Legislature, public, and press. Bob Schroeder, who served former Governor Tim Pawlenty as his Chief of Staff, welcomes Governor Dayton's promising start. In his talk, Schroeder will use his unique understanding of Minnesota government to pinpoint key lessons in organizing for success, navigating challenges, or avoiding pitfalls for the Dayton administration in the months ahead. The event will be moderated by Professor Lawrence R. Jacobs.
