Clinton Aide Leaves BPC to Start New Firm

Veteran Clinton administration aide Paul Bledsoe is leaving the Bipartisan Policy Center where he has worked since its inception in 2007 to create his own public policy firm.

Bledsoe's new firm, Bledsoe & Associates, will specialize on tax policy, energy, natural resources and climate change. Under President Bill Clinton, Bledsoe was communications director of the White House Climate Change Task Force and a special assistant to Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt. Before his stint in the Clinton administration, Bledsoe was communications director for the Senate Finance Committee under former Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y.

"We are deeply grateful for Paul's service to BPC since its founding, and wish him all the best in his new endeavors," said BPC President Jason Grumet.

"I intend to remain very active personally regarding major public policy issues that I know are important to so many of you," Bledsoe wrote in a letter to friends and colleagues.

In the letter Bledsoe noted that his current and pending clients include "major philanthropic foundations, leading universities, top NGOs and research organizations."

BPC also announcing Thursday that Rosemarie Calabro Tully has joined its staff as the energy press secretary. Tully was previously press secretary for the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Democratic staff.

The BPC, which was founded in 2007 by former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell, has been a key voice on a host of issues, and especially energy and environment policy. Grumet, its president, is close with Obama administration officials and has advised Obama, including during the transition four years ago.
