The nation’s fastest-growing free market think tank – Mountain States Policy Center (MSPC) – is delighted to announce that Boise State University grad and former Idaho legislative candidate Sebastian Griffin is joining the staff as the organization’s Marketing and Communications Coordinator.


“Sebastian is an entrepreneur and a doer,” said Chris Cargill, the President and CEO of Mountain States Policy Center. “His experience and passion for free markets will be a key part of our success now and long into the future.”


Griffin earned a BS in Government and Political Science from Boise State University. In 2022, he was a candidate for the Idaho legislature. Over the past five years, Griffin has served and worked on dozens of campaigns for state and local offices. In 2019, when he was just a senior in high school, Griffin helped craft Idaho Senate Bill 1060 – legislation that allows high schoolers flexibility in graduation if they meet certain state benchmarks.


“As a 5th generation Idahoan who has lived in a number of states as well as abroad, I know free markets are the keystone to what makes Idaho, and the Northwest Region, one of the most desirable places to live, work, and play,”Griffin said. “I’m thrilled to be part of communicating that message and advancing MSPC’s mission.”


Griffin also founded his own marketing and communications firm Griffin Marketing. He lives in Nampa, Idaho with his wife Macy and their newborn daughter. He’ll be based in the Treasure Valley and start for MSPC on June 1st.


Mountain States Policy Center is a non-profit, non-partisan research center that provides free market solutions to successfully grow the region. It concentrates its work in Idaho, Eastern Washington, Montana and Wyoming – one of the first organizations of its kind to cover multiple states. 


MSPC’s mission is to empower those in the Mountain States to succeed through non-partisan, quality research that promotes free enterprise, individual liberty and limited government.
