Joshua Treviño to join Texas Monthly 

New role with the Texas Public Policy Foundation

AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation announces that its Vice President for Communications, Joshua Treviño, will join the staff of Texas Monthly as Writer-at-Large with the September issue of that magazine. Concurrent with this engagement, he will step down from the vice president position but continue to work with the Foundation in a consultative role.

“Since his arrival at the Texas Public Policy Foundation in January 2011, Joshua Treviño has transformed the way our communications operate and engage the world,” said President and CEO Brooke Rollins. “At his arrival, our record year for media was 2008. By the end of 2011, Treviño nearly quadrupled that record, vaulting our Foundation into the top tier of national and even international media. He has made the difference between a TPPF that is well known in Texas – and a TPPF that is well known across America. We are so grateful for the time he has spent here – and we look forward to working with him in the Texas-based movement for liberty for years to come.”

“When you look at the things Joshua Treviño has done in his time at TPPF,” said Executive Director Arlene Wohlgemuth, “it is remarkable that so much has been accomplished in so short a time. From the Texas budget-battle commercials of the 82nd legislature, to our Hispanic-outreach roundtables, to our first revamped website in nearly a decade, to our new and innovative events calendar, to our largest-ever Policy Orientation, to our increased efficacy across the board – so much of our success in the past two years bears his mark.”

“I have wanted to work with and for the Texas Public Policy Foundation for over half a decade,” said Joshua Treviño, “and when the opportunity to do so came in early 2011, it was a dream come true. The extraordinary work of the Foundation is a reflection of its extraordinary people – and especially its President, Brooke Rollins, and its Executive Director, Arlene Wohlgemuth. I am privileged to have been able to call them colleagues and friends. In this exciting next phase of my professional life, I look forward to continuing work with them – not as a Foundation employee, but as a fellow-traveler in the fight for liberty in Texas and beyond.”

Treviño may be reached at or (512) 777-1845.

The Texas Public Policy Foundation is a non-profit, free-market research institute based in Austin.
