Bullock to represent Pa. in prestigious fellowship

PHILADELPHIA, June 12 – State Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Phila., announced today that she has been selected to participate in the Henry Toll Fellowship Program, a prestigious leadership boot camp organized by The Council of State Governments.

“I’m happy to be part of this year’s cohort. I’m looking forward to meet government officials from all across the country to exchange insights on public policy and issues we may have in common,” Bullock said. “It’s a nontraditional program and we will be working out of our comfort zones. I know it will be challenging both physically and mentally, but the experience will help me bring a new perspective to the work I do every day in Philadelphia and Harrisburg.”

The training will be held from Friday, Aug. 24 through Tuesday, Aug. 28 in Lexington, Ky.

The Toll Fellowship Program, named after the Council’s founder Henry Wolcott Toll, is one of the nation’s premier leadership development programs for state government officials. Each year, the program brings 48 of the nation’s top officials from all three branches of state government, for an intensive five-day, five-night leadership boot camp. The program’s sessions are designed to stimulate personal assessment and growth, while providing networking and relationship-building opportunities.

CSG is the only national organization serving all three branches of state government. It offers a region-based forum that fosters the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy.
