Staff Notes

A sad goodbye here at the National Center, as our office manager, Nickie Kelley, is leaving us to become a staff assistant to Rep. Dave Weldon (R-FL). Nickie’s sunny personality will be missed, but we wish her the best at her new position on the Hill.

In other staff notes, we also welcome aboard Research Associates Rosemarie Capozzi and Nick Cheolas. Nick comes to us from the University of Michigan, where he serves as Editor-in-Chief of The Michigan Review .

Rose is a recent graduate of the University of Maryland, my own alma mater, and past chairman of the Maryland Federation of College Republicans, a post I held from 1978-80. When I told Rose I held the post back then, she said something along the lines of, “I didn’t know there was a College Republican federation in Maryland before 1993.”

It is nice to be remembered.

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.
