Deb Heinrich, the CT Governor’s Nonprofit Liaison

JUST back from a whirlwind trip that took me from Idaho to Wisconsin to Connecticut.

At EACH juncture, I spoke, with escalating fervor, to nonprofit colleagues about our shared economic contributions to every community and our essential need to work in concert to elect new leaders.

What kind of leader do I want? Ones who commit to appointing a liaison to work everyday with nonprofits in their city or state.

There is only one state where a Governor has a point person—Connecticut, under Gov Malloy, and his point person, Deb Heinrich sat down with me yesterday for a solid chat about her first years work. Pay attention to her….her work could very well become the prototype.
