We are excited today to launch the Mountain States Policy Center blog. As the organization's incoming President & CEO, I am humbled by the support we have received thus far and look forward to a long-lasting impact not only here in Idaho, but across the region.
The idea to launch Mountain States Policy Center has been in the works for quite some time. There have been starts and stops, but all along, the people who are behind this effort have had one thing in mind: create a credible, free market oriented think tank that can empower you and make life better in our region.
This blog will give us an opportunity to talk to you directly. We'll be posting here as much as possible. We hope it will become part of your daily reading. We hope you'll have feedback and be part of the discussion.
You may not agree with every position we take - and this is fine, and healthy. But we guarantee that we'll always take a stand, not based on politics, but based on what the research recommends.
Today is day one of something that I believe will last far beyond me or any of us, because we believe in the power of ideas. And ideas never stop.
