From Jeff Cohen, founder of FAIR, columnist/TV commentator, former ACLU attorney

To whom it may concern:
I have been an executive in the progressive/public interest/nonprofit sector for more than two decades, and I have never come across a public interest co-worker whose skills and work ethic surpassed those of David Swanson. He is a quick study, talented writer, great motivator of colleagues and consummate multi-tasker. I first met him when he was the communications director of ACORN. I hired him as the press secretary of the Kucinich for President campaign, where he did the work of three people. His output was the marvel of people inside and outside the campaign.
If he is available to you, I would highly recommend hiring him. Feel free to contact me about David.
