Why subscribe?

I discuss politics, history, public policy, and especially the US Senate from my unique experience as a former insider, with a focus on the other side - and the inside - of the story the media often doesn’t provide. Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update.

Who am I? A 23 year veteran of the food industry as a lobbyist and communications professional; a former government official, including the 28th Secretary of the US Senate and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Transportation (Public Affairs) during the George H. W. Bush Administration; congressional chief of staff or press secretary to 3 Members of Congress; a GOP campaign operative, involved in 35 campaigns in 25 states over a quarter century. Got my start as a news reporter and editor in my native Oklahoma. Now returning to my first profession in the comfort and sanctuary of semi-retirement. I do some non profit board work.
