Progressive Round Table
On April 18, 2013, Progressive Democrats of America held a Progressive Round Table in D.C. with staffers Joseph Wender from Rep Ed Markey's office, Jenny Perrino from Rep. John Conyers' office, and Jamie Long from Rep. Keith Ellison's office who reported on key legislation and joined us discussing austerity pressure, budget priorities and more.
We also welcomed Ethan Rosenkranz from the Project on Defense Alternatives, Stephen Miles from Win Without War, Miriam Pemberton from the Institute for Policy Studies, Joan Stallard from CODEPINK, and Michael Lighty as well as several NNU nurses who were holding their lobby day on the Hill. 
"I’m also proud to announce that District Director Jamie Long will be promoted to Deputy Chief of Staff. Previously serving as Legislative Director and then District Director, Jamie has been an indispensable member of my team. We have one of the most active District Offices in Congress, and Jamie has made sure we are in constant communication with constituents and responsive to their needs. I know he will bring the same work ethic and passion to this expanded role."
