The Thompson Book Event celebrated Governor Thompson’s legacy of pragmatic policymaking, interest in tackling big issues, and willingness to work across the aisle. Governor Thompson spoke at the event and took questions from his audience, discussing his lifetime of public service and his new book TOMMY: My Journey of a Lifetime. The former Governor and US Secretary of Health and Human Services also weighed in on a wide range of topics, including bipartisanship in government, prison reform and prisoner re-entry, the Wisconsin Foxconn agreement, and the federal preperations hurricane Florence.
Discussion was sponsored in large part by the Thompson Center, working in conjunction with WisPolitics.com. If you are interested in the Governor’s book an excerpt and instructions as to purchase a copy can be found here, or by navigation of the WisPolitics.com website.
