AUSTIN— Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation congratulated Vance Ginn, Ph.D., who served as TPPF senior economist and director of the Center for Economic Freedom, on becoming the associate director for economic policy with the White House Office of Management and Budget.

“Vance is a hard-working, passionate, and strong leader who at all times cheerfully championed fiscal conservatism and the Texas Model,” said Kevin Roberts, executive director of the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “He will be sorely missed, but we are proud to have him continue his work in Washington to benefit not only Texans but help all Americans prosper.”
