The George Bush Presidential Library Foundation at Texas A&M University will host the 43rd Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush, for an evening lecture on Jan. 10 at 6 p.m. at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center.
Bush, who will be teaching a 10-day course at The Bush School of Government and Public Service on the role of the gubernatorial leadership and its impact on government at all levels, will give a talk to foundation members and the community at large. He will be joining the faculty of the school named for his father, President George H.W. Bush, as an executive professor and John D. White ’70 Distinguished Professor of Practice.
A successful entrepreneur and businessman in Texas and Florida, Bush served as the first two-term Republican governor of Florida from 1999 through 2007. During his eight years as governor, Bush pushed an ambitious Everglades conservation plan, supported caps for medical malpractice litigation, launched a Medicaid privatization pilot program, and instituted reforms to the state education system, including issuance of vouchers and promotion of school choice.
