Stinziano Among Legislators At Prestigious Bowhay Institute For Legislative Leadership Development

MADISON, Wisc. – State Rep. Michael Stinziano is among several state legislators from throughout the Midwest attending the prestigious 18th annual Bowhay Institute for Legislative Leadership Development.

The institute is taking place at the Fluno Center of Executive Education here and will draw about 30 state lawmakers from throughout the Midwest and three Canadian provinces to hear from distinguished policy experts and decision makers.

“I’m honored to be a part of this select group,” said Stinziano, a Columbus Democrat. “This great learning opportunity will help me better serve my constituents and improve my leadership skills.”

According to the Bowhay Institute, through the program, state lawmakers will explore issues with nationally-renown scholars, professional development experts and legislative leaders and colleagues from across the region.

The institute was started in 1995 by Virginia Thrall, then director of the Midwestern Office of the Council of State Governments, and Professor Peter Eisinger, then director of the La Follette Institute. Since then, the institute has graduated more than 500 alumni.

Earlier in August, Stinziano, an attorney and former director of the Franklin County Board of Elections, served on the Labor and Economic Development and the Redistricting and Elections committees at the National Conference of State Legislatures Legislative Summit in Chicago.
