Linda Lingle, former Hawaii Governor and Michael Dukakis, former Massachusetts Governor,  will discuss their time in office at a special presentation on Tuesday.

Lawrence Becker, CSUN political science department chair, said that the two governors are experienced and accomplished in their respective roles.

“A governor in any state is faced with the myriad of public policy problems, crises, and controversies, and so the many years of experience Gov. Dukakis and Gov. Lingle have yields important lessons that can be applied to the contemporary challenges of governance,” said Becker.

He said that even though they come from two different political parties, Lingle is a democrat and Dukakis is a republican, they share a vision of the importance of public service.

The presentation, free and organized by the political science department, is scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. in the Grand Salon room of the University Student Union. It’s open to the public but reservations are requested, so be sure to get your seat by hitting up the link below.
