Attorney General Gansler Named as Aspen Institute Fellow

BALTIMORE, MD (January 9, 2009) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler is among 24 elected public officials from 22 states to be selected as a member of the Aspen Institute’s Rodel Fellowships in Public Leadership. The members are selected based on their reputation for intellect, thoughtfulness, and a bipartisan approach to governing.

“It is an honor to be chosen as a Rodel Fellow,” said Attorney General Gansler. “I look forward to working with my peers from across the country to exchange innovative ideas and develop sound policies that will help us meet the challenges that face our communities today.”
Established in 2005, the Aspen Institute-Rodel Fellowships in Public Leadership program works to enhance American democracy by convening the nation’s most promising young political leaders in a casual, bipartisan setting to explore the underlying values and principles of western democracy, the relationship between individuals and their community, and the responsibilities of public leadership.

In addition to Attorney General Gansler, holders of statewide office also include Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox, Vermont Lieutenant Governor Brian Dubie, Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, and Mississippi State Treasurer Tate Reeves.

Founded in 1950, the Aspen Institute is an international non-profit organization dedicated to fostering enlightened leadership and open-minded dialogue. The Institute is headquartered in Washington, DC, and has campuses in Aspen, Colorado, and on the Wye River on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Its international network includes partner Aspen Institutes in Berlin, Rome, Lyon, Tokyo, New Delhi, and Bucharest, and leadership programs in Africa, Central America and India.
