The team here at Pay to Play Law Blog wants to welcome a phenomenal group of commentators to the McKenna Long & Aldridge blogosphere. Last week, MLA launched its newest blog, “Politics, Law and Policy,” authored by a bipartisan group of attorneys and public policy advisors in the firm’s nationally-recognized government affairs practice. The blog will serve as an important resource for those seeking analysis and resources on the impact of federal and state politics and public policies on a wide range of issues and debates, including health care, energy, infrastructure, taxes, transportation, cybersecurity, and campaign and election compliance.
Led by Eric Tanenblatt, head of ML A’s National Government Affairs practice, the MLA Politics, Law and Policy blog follows law and public policy developments and political campaigns at the state and national levels. It features legal, political and policy insights from attorneys and professionals who have held public office and served as their advisors, including governors, mayors, ambassadors, attorneys general, congressional members, and senior administration officials.
Contributors to the Politics, Law and Policy blog from MLA’s Government Affairs practice include Speaker Emeritus Mark Burkhalter (R-GA); Cindy Gillespie, co-chair of the firm’s Health Insurance Exchange team and former special counselor to Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney; and Governor Howard Dean (D-VT), former chair of the Democratic National Committee. Other contributors include: former U.S. Ambassador to Canada Gordon Giffin; former Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker ; former Washington, DC Mayor Anthony Williams; and former assistant to President William J. Clinton, Keith Mason to name a few.
