It was with a mix of excitement and sorrow that I informed NNA’s Board of Directors this fall that the time for the next step in my retirement has come. NNA will engage a new public policy manager and continue next year with a new governance structure under NNA Chair John Galer, publisher of The Journal-News in Hillsboro, Illinois, and Public Policy Oversight Chair Brett Wesner, president of Wesner Publications, Cordell, Oklahoma, to oversee its lobbyists and coalitions.
Serving NNA as its chief public policy and postal person for three decades has been like getting a doctorate in the workings of American democracy. The importance of newspapers in helping our nation to function has never been greater, and it was my privilege to be a part of making that equation work since 1992.
