What is the No. 1 priority or your work at Free Press?
It’s my job to nd the legal underpinningsor policies that we think will serve thepublic best. Even the best-laid plans will all by the wayside i they’re oundunconstitutional or otherwise in violationo the law. So that’s basically my job —it’s to make sure the stu that we envisionas being great or our community isactually sustainable on a legal basis.
Aside rom the legal research, what kindso tasks fll your day?
A large part o my job is strategizing withmembers o the policy and programteams about how to engage the public and decision-makers on our advocacy goals. This may entail coordinating outreach to press, Free Press members andother groups, and guring out ways toeectively message our issues and inspirepeople to take action.Our allies are critical to the work wedo at Free Press, so we coordinate withthem whenever possible. There are lotso terric, smart people in the mediaadvocacy community.
Do you have any hobbies?
Food — not cooking it, just eating it. I’malso a huge an o old radio shows romthe 1930s and 1940s.
What is one way that you wind down ater a hard day at work?
To counteract my compulsion toconstantly check my Blackberry or things I may have orgotten to do, Ilike to sit down with a glass o wineand watch trashy television. Thank you, CW network!
