The story of the creation of Connecticut's Kid Governor!
A message from your friends at the Connecticut Public Affairs Network...
This time last year Connecticut’s Kid Governor (CKG) was just an idea brainstormed in a grocery store parking lot. Now, it’s a hugely popular school program that’s gearing up for its second election this fall - all while the current and first Connecticut’s Kid Governor, Elena Tipton, successfully touts her “Campaign for Kindness” throughout the state. During this installment of “Tales from the Old State House,” you will hear the story of how this program came to be and where it’s going from the educator who was both in that parking lot and currently at the helm of CKG, Brian Cofrancesco. To learn more about Connecticut’s Kid Governor, both the program and the student, visit CT.KidGovernor.org and follow CKG on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. This installment of “Tales from the Old State House” was recorded in July 2016.
