(WASHINGTON D.C. ) - The Marijuana Policy Project recently hired Kurt A. Gardinier to be the organization’s new director of communications. Gardinier joined MPP earlier this month and officially takes over the communications department from Bruce Mirken on Tuesday, December 22.
Gardinier is based in MPP’s Washington, D.C. office, and among other things will serve as an MPP spokesperson for radio, newspaper and TV interviews.
“While we will certainly miss Bruce and his exceptional work and character, we are very pleased to welcome Kurt Gardinier to MPP,” said Rob Kampia, MPP’s executive director and co-founder.
“Kurt brings more than a decade’s worth of experience in broadcast media and political advocacy to MPP. This background will undoubtedly play a vital role in promoting MPP’s message about the failure of marijuana prohibition at a very pivotal time in our nation’s history.”
Most recently, Gardinier was a producer for “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC in New York, where he wrote and produced live television segments on topics ranging from politics and sports to breaking news. For more than five years he worked with U.S. Term Limits, the nation’s leading issue advocacy organization supporting term limits for elected officials. During that same period Kurt also worked extensively with The Initiative and Referendum Institute.
Gardinier, a native of Saratoga Springs, New York, received his Bachelor’s degree in Marketing/Management from Siena College and his Master’s degree in Public Communications from The College of Saint Rose.
