"A state governor is the leader of all the people of a state, just like a leader of an organization speaks for its people. Being a leader in a school or community organization is a great experience, but it takes a lot of work. The road to becoming a politician can seem complicated, especially when you think about being elected. With content that explores the role of the state governor, who is eligible, and how one is elected, this book uniquely relates state governors' experiences to readers working for student leadership positions."-- Publisher's website.
