Congratulations to Jay Timmons

Congratulations to National Center Board of Directors Member Jay Timmons, who has just been appointed senior vice president of policy at the National Association of Manufacturers, the nation’s largest industrial trade association and easily one of the most influential organizations in Washington.

In his new position, Jay will lead the Association’s policy and government affairs staff. According to a press release by the National Association of Manufacturers, this staff “develops positions on policy and economic issues in front of the Congress as well as those in the Executive Branch.”

Jay previously served for 12 years as chief of staff to Senator and Governor George Allen of Virginia and served as executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee during the 2004 election cycle. Jay presently is employed by the Washington office of the Florida law firm Tew Cardenas LLP.

The National Association of Manufacturers is headed by former Michigan Governor John Engler.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
