Washington, D.C. - Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) announced today the addition of former Minnesota congressman Vin Weber to its Board of Directors.

“We are delighted to announce Vin Weber’s increased involvement with CAGW,” CAGW President Thomas A. Schatz said. “As a longtime friend and ally of CAGW, Rep. Weber will lend us his experience and strategic insight to our efforts to eliminate government waste, abuse and mismanagement.  There are few people in Washington with his breadth of experience, expertise, and respect from both sides of the aisle.  We are honored to have him with us.”

Rep. Weber is currently managing partner of Clark & Weinstock's Washington office, and co-director of the Domestic Policy Project of the Aspen Institute.  He also is a fellow at the Humphrey Institute at the University of Minnesota, where he is a co-director with former Congressman Tim Penny of the Policy Forum.  Rep. Weber is also a co-director of Empower America.

“I am pleased to join CAGW’s Board of Directors,” Vin Weber commented.  “CAGW has an outstanding national reputation as the source of information on wasteful spending.  With its one million members and supporters, CAGW has a tremendous impact on policymaking in Washington.”

Rep. Weber has been featured in numerous national publications, including the National Journal, the New Republic, The Wall Street Journal and the American Spectator, as both subject and author.  He is a sought-after political and policy analyst, appearing frequently on the major television networks, on Sunday political talk shows and on CNN's Crossfire and Capital Gang programs.  He is also a senior editor of National Review.

Rep. Weber served in the United States House of Representatives from 1981 to 1993, representing Minnesota's 2nd Congressional District.  He was a member of the Appropriations Committee and an elected member of the House Republican Leadership.  Prior to his congressional service, he served as campaign manager and chief Minnesota aide to Sen. Rudy Boshwitz (1978-1980), as the co-publisher of The Murray County Herald (1976-1978) and as press secretary to Rep. Tom Hagedorn (1974-1976). 

Rep. Weber was a key advisor to the presidential campaigns of President George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain.  He continues to enjoy strong bipartisan relationships across the legislative and executive branches of government.

CAGW is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization with over a million members and supporters, dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, and abuse in government.
