Americans For Prosperity Names Deputy Director in Colorado

May 24, 2011 J

COLORADO SPRINGS – Americans for Prosperity today announced that Sean Paige, a former Colorado Springs city councilman with more than 20 years of experience in journalism and public policy work, has been hired as deputy director of AFP’s Colorado chapter. Paige joins Colorado State Director Jeff Crank. Growth in grassroots membership and AFP’s increasingly-high profile in the state mean there’s plenty of work to be done. Paige officially begins on June 1st.

“I am thrilled to have Sean join Americans for Prosperity Colorado,” said Jeff Crank, Colorado State Director. “He brings a great deal of experience and talent to the organization. This is a major step in the continued growth of the organization and it allows Americans for Prosperity to take the organization to the next level in Colorado.”

Paige came to Colorado Springs in 2002 to work at the Colorado Springs Gazette, where he served as editorial page editor for 5 years. That followed 14 years in Washington, D.C., working in journalism, politics and think tanks. He’s a former spokesman for Citizens Against Government Waste; a former fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute; and a former writer and columnist for Insight on the News, a weekly magazine once published by The Washington Times. Of late he has been running two libertarian-leaning advocacy groups in Colorado Springs, the Limited Government Forum and Local Liberty Action. He’s founder of the Peak Freedom Festival. And he’s an editor and blogger at LocalLibertyOnline.org, a website focused on the fight for freedom at the local level.

“Americans for Prosperity has become a major force in defense of limited government, economic freedom and bedrock American ideas and values,” said Paige. “How could I not be excited about joining this team? AFP already has changed the political landscape in Colorado, moving the state back toward common sense, free market roots. I know we’ll have an even greater impact by combining forces.”
