Message from our chair

A Regional Perspective: A unified voice for Midwestern Governors

Welcome to the Midwestern Governors Association website!

 

As Chair of the MGA for 2015, I look forward to working with my fellow Midwestern governors to increase regional discussions on poverty reductions.

Most Midwesterners enjoy an unsurpassed quality of life. Our four distinct seasons, cultural and sporting activities, culinary delights, affordability, natural beauty, and the friendly nature of its residents continue to make the region a go-to location. The Midwest has a thriving pulse from international city-centers to urban regrowth to rural communities serving as our nation’s backbone. With quality education systems, low crime rates, close-knit communities and numerous outdoor recreational activities, Midwestern states and their rural communities continue to be excellent places to live, work, raise a family and

grow a business. But despite these globally recognized regional attributes, there are some in our region that are living in poverty and have a great need for assistance.

 

States continue to lead on policies, programs and assistance for those in need. However, the complexity of this issue does not allow for a one-size-fits-all solution. Fortunately, there are a lot of regional similarities and opportunities for sharing best practices and discussing how to approach poverty reduction.

 

I look forward to working with my fellow governors to ensure our region continues to be the best place to live, work, start a family, get an education, visit, do business and someday even retire.
