Howard Dean to Join McKenna Long and Aldridge LLP

Chairman Emeritus of the DNC bolsters firm's national government affairs practice

WASHINGTON, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Governor Howard Dean -- a nationally recognized political figure, presidential candidate and six term Governor -- has agreed to serve as an independent consultant exclusive to the government affairs practice at McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP. Governor Dean will provide guidance to clients, particularly in the areas of healthcare and alternative energy resources.

Governor Dean joins MLA following his tenure as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) where he created and implemented the "50 State Strategy." In his new role as Senior Strategic Advisor and Independent Consultant, he will use his experience running national campaigns to the benefit of states and municipalities. Governor Dean will leverage his position as a thought-leader on policy issues to the benefit of his clients in the health and energy sectors.

Respected for his fiscally moderate policies as Governor, he understands first-hand the severe budget constraints that are challenging state and municipal governments. His network of relationships across the U.S. complement the firm's strong presence nationally. He is uniquely positioned to develop partnerships between industry stakeholders and local governments.

Ambassador Gordon Giffin, who leads the firm's public policy department was enthusiastic about the addition of Governor Dean. "Our firm is honored that a man of Governor Dean's accomplishments and stature in the public policy arena has chosen to affiliate with us. His years of experience and thoughtful approach to public policy challenges will provide our clients with a remarkable resource as all businesses adjust to this era of government engagement with the private sector."

"After a long career in public office, I look forward to the opportunity to turn some attention to working with the private sector, particularly in the areas of health care and alternative energy -- while supporting an agenda of fiscal responsibility. McKenna has an excellent platform of policy advisors who are already working in a bi-partisan way with government and industry to advance projects for the common good," said Dean. "I'm very much at home here with this strong team, which includes a number of former elected officials."

Dean began his life in politics in 1982 when he transitioned from a full-time practicing physician to an elected representative in Vermont. Dean raised his profile in the state, culminating in 12 years of service as Vermont's governor -- the second longest serving in the state. Respected on both sides of the political aisle, Dean was a chairman of the National Governors' Association, the Democratic Governors' Association, and the New England Governors' Conference while he served as Governor of Vermont. Dean left office in Vermont to run for President in 2003 where he implemented innovative fundraising strategies such as use of the internet.

Dean joins the national team of MLA's Government affairs practice which includes a number of widely respected attorneys and professionals including Gordon Giffin, former U.S. Ambassador to Canada; Eric Tanenblatt, longtime advisor to the late U.S. Senator Paul Coverdell; former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense at DOD and Congressman Paul McHale; former Congressman Buddy Darden; former Mayor of Indianapolis Steve Goldsmith; former senior Clinton White House officials Marcia Hale and Keith Mason; Joe Dowley, former chief counsel to the House Ways and Means Committee; and Cindy Gillespie, senior counselor to Governor Mitt Romney.
