Governor Responsibilities

Governor Responsibilities

Sulaiman Azizi, Staff Writer

Although loyalty, political skill, and trust are required for this position, one must have a strong understanding of the state government and the skills needed to manage the governor’s staff and oversee the management of a large and complex government structure. Public safety can be included in one of these qualities. Public safety can be defined as the well-being or protection of a community, citizen, or nation as a whole. There are 4 basic elements that come under public safety namely: national security, border policy, countering crime, and emergency management.

The governor is the state’s highest elected official, but his or her actual duties are more diverse than, for example, an elected member of the state legislature whose primary role is to propose and vote on new laws. Depending on the constitution in that state, the governor’s responsibilities vary from state to state.

I think it is the most important for states and cities because they do everything in order to build a better city and it should be necessary to have a responsible governor that could be more effective. For example imagine, if we have no leader or someone in our family to take care of us, how would our situation will go through? So definitely living without parents and living without a governor is a serious problem that brings hardships and misfortune. 

 The most common way the governor got to his position today was to first be a lieutenant governor. The ten states are governed by a person who was in position 2 before becoming governor. The job of the second governor is Congress. Going from the parliament to the government building is logical in terms of job security and future job opportunities. In Congress, you are one of the 435 members, you are constantly running for re-election, and most Americans cannot vote for the police.

Governors carry out their managerial and leadership responsibilities and goals with the support and assistance of heads of departments and agencies, many of whom have the power to appoint. Most governors also have the power to appoint state court judges, which in most cases comes from a list of nominees submitted by the nomination committee. Also Governors hire managers for every kind of job.
