TPC’s Upcoming Leadership Change

By :: March 20th, 2013

Dear readers, we have two big pieces of TPC news today.

First, I will be moving upstairs (both figuratively and literally) as the Urban Institute’s first director of economic policy initiatives, starting in June. I’ve loved my time at TPC, but this is a great chance to work with colleagues throughout Urban on an even broader range of economic and fiscal policy issues.  And I won’t be leaving TPC entirely; as an institute fellow affiliated with the center, I will continue to chime in on tax and budget issues.

Second, we are thrilled that Len Burman will be returning as TPC director. Len is currently the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Professor of Public Affairs at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University, but his real claim to fame is being one of TPC’s founders and its leader through 2009. TPC wouldn’t be TPC without Len’s vision and effort, and I consider it a real coup to get him back.

For all the details, please see today’s official announcement and please join me in welcoming Len.

    TPC is extremely fortunate to get Len back. He makes exceptional efforts to present all sides of an issue and he’s so darned smart that he has no fear of admitting an error or omission. Not that I can recall ever seeing him make an outright error.

    I surmise that Len’s influence was instrumental in TPC’s studiously balanced approach to issues. I wish him success in burnishing TPC’s brand as the best and possibly the only place to find nonpartisan analysis of tax legislation.

    Welcome back Len! I look forward to your continued thoughts on tax reform!

    Congratulations Donald! Sounds like the perfect next step for you and the TPC will have the added bonus of Len back from the Northlands. I can’t wait to see what UI’s next turn of your wheel! Best wishes, m2
