Gov. Linda Lingle will serve on a new governor’s council as part of the Bipartisan Policy Center, a Washington, D.C., based group founded by former U.S. Senate majority leaders to help shape public policy.

The new governor’s council will be made up of four to six former governors from both parties, according to Lingle’s office.

“It is an honor to be invited to join former colleagues to work together in a bipartisan manner to address some of the most significant issues facing our nation and our states,” Lingle said in a statement. “Serving on the governors’ council will provide an opportunity to highlight at the national level the successful initiatives being undertaken in Hawaii, such as the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative and our focus on STEM and robotics education.  At the same time, we can also learn from the successes of other states.”


The Bipartisan Policy Center was founded in 2007 by former U.S. Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker (R-Tenn.), Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), Bob Dole (R-Kan.) and George Mitchell (D-Maine).  


Lingle is leaving office on Monday after two four-year terms.
