VLTP Co-Founder and Program Director Ron Rabatsky Leaves VLTP

As of April 10th, 2013 VLTP Co-Founder Ron Rabatsky resigned his position with Voters Legislative Transparency Project.  Ron is leaving VLTP but will continue his work pursuing ALEC and seeking to make their actions and initiatives transparent to all.

Ron will be missed for his tireless work ethic and ability to keep track of every project VLTP has been involved in over the past two years.  He was instrumental to our work and took on many duties over the course of our existence, juggling hats and toggling between twitter, FB and editing article submissions.

Those wishing to keep up with Ron and his new pursuits can find him on the Face Book page, “Resist the Privatization of America” which he started as “Dis Gust” prior to helping start VLTP and has maintained throughout his tenure.  I know our readers wish him well in his new endeavors – as those of us remaining at VLTP do.
