The Council of State Governments has selected Democratic state Sen. Kesha Ram Hinsdale of Shelburne as a 2023 recipient of the 20 Under 40 Leadership Award.

The award is presented annually to 20 young elected and appointed officials from across the country who not only exemplify strong leadership skills but have also demonstrated a true commitment to serving the citizens of their state.

Ram Hinsdale was selected for her commitment to public service, ability to engage with officials across party lines and exceptional leadership. She will receive her 20 Under 40 Leadership Award at the 2023 CSG national conference Dec. 8 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

“While the outstanding state officials recognized by CSG this year come from diverse backgrounds, different political parties, every branch of state government and every region of our country, they share the same commitment to serve others,” said David Adkins, CSG executive director and CEO. “They are hard-working, visionary leaders whose passion for public service is producing results for their states.”
