Here’s the announcement of her appointment, cut and pasted from today’s edition of Out of the Blue, “The Daily Buzz,” an emailed, Democrat-oriented Tennessee politics/public policy newsletter launched by Sharp and soon to be distributed by Crockett Policy Institute. (Note: It’s free, but you have to sign up for it, HERE.)
In 2011 we created Crockett Policy Institute as a non-partisan, non-profit organization, dedicated to improving the lives of Tennesseans by promoting practical, workable and fair solutions to the challenges facing Tennessee and the surrounding region. Since that time we have focused on jobs, education, energy, and governance seeking to encourage reasonable and bi-partisan approaches to solving problems in those four areas. We think Tennesseans are tired of the extreme partisan rhetoric and ready for creative and thoughtful ideas, from whatever source, that can make life better for us and for our children.
In a step forward we are proud to announce that Trace Sharp will be our new Executive Director responsible for the day-to-day operations of CPI. She has been the moving force behind the electronic publication “The Daily Buzz” providing a rundown of critical issues facing our region. Beginning September 3d, Trace will bring an extensive background in journalism, public service, and civic action to our organization. Her many talents will be well utilized as CPI expands its depth and reach.
