Allen, George

George F. Allen served the Commonwealth of Virginia for more than 20 years, as governor, in both bodies of the United States Congress, and as a delegate holding Thomas Jefferson’s seat in the Virginia General Assembly. Elected governor in 1994, George Allen brought sweeping reform that made Virginia a national model in economic development, public safety, education accountability, and creative government. As a self-described “Common Sense Jeffersonian Conservative,” Allen pushed through reforms with bipartisan support in a legislature held by the opposition.

Following his time as Governor, Allen served in the U.S. Senate from 2001-07.  In addition to his National Advisory Council position with USGLC, Allen is co-chairman of the National Association of Manufacturers’ Manufacturing Competitiveness Initiative, and is the Reagan Ranch Presidential Scholar for the Young America’s Foundation
