Exclusive interview with John G. Rowland
John G. Rowland, former Governor of Connecticut, provided an open and inspiring interview with host Susan Patricelli Regan. Rowland, elected at 37 as the 86th Governor of Connecticut in 1995, was youngest to serve in the state’s history.
After release from serving a second term in prison related to corruption charges in May 2018 Rowland has dedicated his full focus on supporting the rehabilitation of former and current prison inmates via the Prison Fellowship Organization (prisonfellowship.org). In June, 2018 Craig DeRoche, the group’s Senior Vice President of Advocacy and Public Policy and former speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives, recruited Rowland for the position of New England Development Director for the organization.
