Join Civitas for Lunch!
With election season in full swing, it is imperative elected officials and the public stay informed about the issues that most concern North Carolina likely voters. Join Civitas president Col. Francis De Luca, along with special guest Marc Rotterman, as they discuss where North Carolinians stand on the issues that matter most.
Marc Rotterman has unique abilities when it comes to understanding how public policy intersects with politics, and his involvement is extensive. In 1980, Marc Rotterman worked on the national campaign for Reagan for President, and served as an assistant to then Governor Reagan’s Domestic Policy Advisor Martin Anderson. After the Presidential campaign of 1980, Rotterman was asked to join the Reagan Transition Team as Special Assistant to Domestic Policy adviser. In 1981 Rotterman joined the Reagan Administration at the Department of Transportation and was there during one of defining moments of Reagan’s presidency — the Air Traffic controllers strike.
In 1990, Rotterman was asked to help to start a new public policy organization, the John Locke Foundation, a non-profit think-tank based in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he served as the founding President until 1996. Today Marc Rotterman is a conservative ad maker who has worked on numerous campaigns. Rotterman currently serves as Senior Fellow at the John Locke Foundation. He is member of the Reagan Alumni Association and the former Treasurer of the American Conservative Union.
In addition, Marc is the Host of “Front Row” a new public policy and politics show on the NC Channel.
