A lobbying community gem gets noticed

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Dec. 10, 2007

This profile ("She's Geared up for manufacturing"), written by Marc Lifsher,  ran in the Los Angeles Times over the weekend on the California Manufacturers & Technology Association's Chief Lobbyist, Dorothy Rothrock.  After raising children, shouldering an energy crisis, defending the economy and jobs during the nation's first statewide greenhouse gas reduction bill, and meeting other Sacramento challenges, Rothrock is ready for the "second half of her career" at CMTA.  That half includes making AB 32 work for the economy and manufacturers, doggedly pursuing opportunities to provide career and technical education for California's students, reducing the cost burdens on our state's high wage providers, and other worthy causes.

A special thanks to V. John White for commenting in the article on the positive experience of being on the other side of Rothrock's positions and advocacy efforts.  It's engaging dialogue like the one between Rothrock and White that raise the bar on policies coming out of Sacramento.  As the Communications VP working with "Dot", I can also vouch for her unfettered determination, class and sincerity in all of her professional endeavors.  On another note, her very cool and bright children, Annie and Tommy, tell me she really does do upside down yoga at home.  She's going to need it.
