Mitch Daniels served as Governor of the State if Indiana from 2005 to 2013. In eight short years he accomplished more than most politicians can manage in an entire lifetime. He turned deficits into surpluses, ended public-sector collective bargaining , reduced the work force of the state by 18 percent while improving services. Indiana’s credit rating was upgraded to AAA for the first time in history, and the Department of Motor Vehicles became widely known for its excellent public service.
He is currently the President of Purdue University, and thrifty as is his wont, has privatized some services and applied a tuition freeze to keep higher education affordable for middle class families. He is also firm in his belief in free speech.
In this video from the Reason Foundation, Mitch Daniels is interviewed by Reason magazine Editor in Chief Matt Welch. Daniels gives us all a lesson in good government, and how it’s done.
