Magazine Names Daniels “Governor of the Year”

13th Floor (the blog of Governing magazine) just released its 2008 Public Officials of the Year results, and Indiana’s own Governor Mitch Daniels was named Governor of the Year. This is actually a sneak peek of information that will be released in their magazine in November.

An accompanying press release explains Daniels was honored for championing "landmark infrastructure and health care legislation, while improving the management of state government and putting his state on a sound fiscal footing." The awards are also discussed here.
