After a months-long national search and recruitment effort, Washington Policy Center’s (WPC’s) governing board has named Michael D. Gallagher the organization’s new President & CEO. “I am honored to serve as the next CEO of the Washington Policy Center,” Gallagher said.

While Gallagher is relocating from Virginia to join WPC in Washington, he has deep roots in the Evergreen State. Two of his children were born in Washington, and his younger daughter graduated from the University of Washington. He also served as chief of staff for former Congressman Rick White.

Mike is optimistic that the people of Washington are growing hungry for free-market solutions. With record revenue and inflationary pressures, legislative majority leadership failed to provide tax relief and have been pushing for an income tax voters have rejected ten times at the ballot box. This kind of disconnect leads people to seek new solutions, and Gallagher wants to make sure WPC continues to share those solutions across the state.
