Rio Rancho, NM (September 27, 2022) — This afternoon, the Southwest Public Policy Institute is pleased to announce that D. Dowd Muska has joined the organization as a senior fellow.

Mr. Muska brings nearly 30 years of research and writing experience to the Institute. A veteran of several think tanks, he is an expert on government at the municipal, county, state, and federal levels.

Mr. Muska said:

“I look forward to working with Patrick and the fine folks at the Southwest Public Policy Institute. While I was born and raised in New England, I have lived in the Southwest — Nevada and New Mexico — for a total of just under ten years, and just celebrated a big birthday by flying to Las Vegas and road-tripping it back to the Land of Enchantment through Utah and Arizona. The region has so much to offer its residents, America, and the world, and helping to promote sound policymaking in such an important corner of our country is a true honor.”
