Assemblywoman Amy Paulin Selected for Prestigious Toll Fellowship

Assemblywoman Amy Paulin was one of 40 emerging state leaders from across the nation selected for the prestigious Toll Fellowship Program sponsored by The Council of State Governments that took place late last month.

The annual week-long seminar is named in honor of Henry Toll, a Colorado senator who founded CSG in 1933. It is aimed at developing the next generation of leaders from all three branches of state government. This year's dynamic program, held in Lexington, Kentucky, focused on trends analysis, policy development and institutional changes. The experience gave these leaders perspectives they would not ordinarily obtain during the course of their regular governmental service.

Assemblywoman Amy Paulin was nominated by Assemblyman Robin Schimminger, with endorsements from Senator John Flanagan and Assemblyman Jeffrion Aubry. Paulin was selected from a field of outstanding applicants by a committee of state elected and appointed officials as one of the most promising leaders of state government. Past Toll Fellowship graduates include governors, US Senators and members of Congress as well as leaders in state government.

"I am honored to have been chosen as a Toll Fellow and extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with so many intelligent and dedicated public servants from across our nation," said Assemblywoman Paulin. "Their integrity and respect for honest, responsive government gives me renewed hope that, working together, we will find solutions to the critical issues facing our country."
