Tim Pawlenty Signs With LAI For Exclusive Lecture Representation


Leading Authorities is pleased to announce exclusive representation of Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty for speaking engagements in 2011. One of the most high-profile Republicans in office, Pawlenty has key insight on the direction of the GOP leading up to the 2012 elections.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity to hear directly from one of the nation’s most respected governors and a leading voice in the Republican Party,” said Mark French, president of Leading Authorities.

Pawlenty is regarded as one of the nation’s most innovative, energetic, reform-minded, and accomplished governors. Currently serving his second term as the 39th governor of Minnesota, he has brought increased accountability to state government, held the line on taxes, improved K-12 education standards and promoted market-based health care reform.

Pawlenty’s most notable accomplishments include proposing and signing into law significant new benefits for veterans and members of the military; enacting a property tax cap, eliminating the marriage penalty and cutting taxes; toughening the state’s education standards; reforming the way teachers are paid through a nation-leading performance pay plan; and instituting free-market health care reforms that increase accountability and provide tax credits to encourage the use of health savings accounts.

In his presentations, he will address the current political environment with a focus on policies and solutions for our country’s challenges.
