Governor’s Weekly Message: Job Mentoring for People with Disabilities

As Chair of the National Governors Association this year, the Governor’s initiative is “A Better Bottom Line: Employing People with Disabilities.”

At noon every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form.  The message is available on:
