Eric Schnurer, President of Public Works, LLC, came on the program to talk about government efficiency, and his truly terrific series of postings on the subject over at The Atlantic.
Schnurer has quite a resume!
Mr. Schnurer has a long record of working with high-level government decision-makers, beginning in college when he worked as a speechwriter during the summers for President Jimmy Carter. He has since served as a speechwriter, deputy press secretary, legal counsel, or policy advisor for more than a dozen governors, U.S. Senators, and presidential candidates. He has written on policy issues for such publications as the New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, American Prospect, and Washington Monthly, as well as for the Center for National Policy, the Progressive Policy Institute, and the Aspen Institute. He has taught at the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels School of Government, Temple Law School, and the Taubman Center for Public Policy at Brown University. He is currently a Woodrow Wilson Fellow, a regular contributor to the Aspen Institute, a fellow at the Center for American Progress, and president of the Drum Major Institute for Public Policy founded by Dr. Martin Luther King to help end poverty.
Mr. Schnurer received his bachelor’s degree with honors in political science from Brown University, and holds a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, where he founded and edited the school’s student policy journal, as well as a juris doctor from Columbia Law School, where he was a member of the law review and a James Kent Scholar, the school’s highest annual honor.
My thanks to Eric Schnurer for coming on the show. Looking forward to getting him up to discuss the series in person.
