New Blogger Joins Mayor Sam



In an effort to add more voices and upgrade our content here at Mayor Sam we're actively seeking intelligent and thoughtful writers who in many cases may be new to blogging.

With this in mind it's my pleasure to introduce our latest "blogging burro" Alexandra Wolter.  Alexandra, or Ali for short, is an amazing young woman with an extensive political resume and direct access to many of Los Angeles' political figures, media personnel and thought leaders.

I announced Ali's joining the blog on LA Talk Radio's Live LA Saturday Night this past weekend where Ali sat in with Frank Sheftel and myself.  You can listen to the show by clicking here.

Alexandra Wolter graduated from Colgate University and is currently completing a Masters in Public Policy with an American Politics emphasis at Pepperdine University. As the lead researcher for a book on the national political landscape (set for 2011 release), Alexandra brings a measured perspective to the news of the day.

Alexandra developed an appreciation for research and writing while living and working in New York; Washington, DC; and London. There she specialized in public and civil sector relations.

Locally, Alexandra works with Thomas Partners Strategies to elect common sense candidates to public offices across the Southland. She also secures speakers for a variety of organizations around Los Angeles. With a campaign background in media and messaging and a passion for political strategy rooted in coalition-building, Alexandra is a fresh voice actively engaged in changing the face of Los Angeles politics. She is presently based in West LA. 

Ali will have her first post published her at Mayor Sam on Tuesday.  We hope you enjoy her reporting and analysis.

Is Thomas Partners Strategies associated with John Thomas, the "Republican party strategist" who works for Cooley, Trutanich, and other Republicans?

Like her "reporting and analysis?"

"Why Whitman Wins Big in November?"

Even more blatant shilling for the Republican party than I could have expected even from a John Thomas flack!

Colgate and Pepperdine - very interesting schools, top drawer for certain but such diverse climates politically and otherwise. Welcome to the West and hope you like it. Is Thomas that guy on the Kevin James show?
