The idea is to have an independent think tank such as Stanford Research Institute or Batelle Institute create an individual profile of education, experience and character that will best be able to meet the challenges and opportunities facing the state.
This is not a time to elect a governor because of legislative skill, popularity or political patronage. We need a governor with modern business and advanced technical talent who possesses a global vision. If you are running and are a successful small business owner, a mayor, an assemblyperson or most attorneys, this is not the time or venue for your skills or aspirations.
Once the think tank creates the modern governor profile, we need to go out and find this person through executive recruitment and selection.
