VIDEO: Olsen Participates in 2017 Edgar Fellows Program

Earlier this year State Representative David S. Olsen (R-Downers Grove) was chosen from a competitive field of candidates to participate in the Edgar Fellows leadership program. Olsen joined 39 other young, emerging leaders from across the Illinois for a multi-day executive leadership training program  hosted by former Governor Jim Edgar and the University of Illinois Institute of Government and Public Affairs (IGPA). In addition to Edgar, an impressive list of practitioners, researchers and scholars from the public arena served as instructors at the training academy.

The program focused on developing leadership and governing capacity in Illinois while emphasizing the need to forthrightly address major policy issues without permitting partisan, ethnic and regional rivalries to trump statesmanship.
