Congratulations to Jay Timmons, a former ten-year member of the National Center for Public Policy Research board of directors, for being selected as the new president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers.
Jay, who served as chief of staff to George Allen in both the Senate and the Virginia governor’s office, replaces former Michigan Governor John Engler in the position.
Actually, I suppose I should congratulate NAM more than Jay, as it is getting a heckuva good CEO — a man who understands and supports the free market while knowing how to get things done.
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.
