"Society, at all levels, has a need to work together to solve the many challenges facing our state and nation. I know that it is possible for people to sit down together and engage in cooperative problem solving. My hope is to re-create a place that will be a center for problem-solving and for bringing together groups with divergent views. This is what I want the O'Connor Institute to stand for. We can do it. The possibilities are endless."
