Conference Highlights

Thank you for your welcome. This is always my favorite conference anywhere. Really. From that first one that started us rolling in Madison, Wisconsin, 10 years ago to the music of the “Tell the Truth Tour” through St. Louis, Memphis, Minneapolis, Boston and now Denver. I’ve been to them all and they just keep getting better.

Thanks to Michael Copps, the model of a public servant.

I'm scrawford on Twitter. I wrote Captive Audience because life is short. Life is short; get in the way.

A hundred years ago, electricity was a luxury. When FDR entered office, 90 percent of farmers didn't have it. FDR took this on — took on special interests, drove towards affordable, world-class electricity for everyone. It wasn't easy. It took leadership.
