Seth Williams selected for fellowship

Philadelphia District Attorney selected for Aspen Institute fellowship

Seth Williams selected for fellowship


Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams is going to do some travelling. He has been selected for the Rodel Fellowship Program at the Aspen Institute, which aims to foster “foster values-based leadership,” according to its web site.

The Rodel program brings together what it says are some of the country’s “most promising political leaders.”

Others selected this year include Minnesota State Repr. Sarah Anderson and Delaware State Rep. Tom Kovach.

The two-year fellowship is designed to briefly break down partisan barriers and provide officeholders with an opportunity to step back from their daily responsibilities to consider broader questions of good governance, according to a news release from the DA’s office. Topics to be studied include Aristotle, Virgina Wolf and Martin Luther King Jr.

The 24-month fellowship program consists of three weekend-long seminars, generally held in Aspen, Colorado, and week-long foreign trips in Asia and the Middle East.
