After wrapping up a three-week sea-kayaking trip in Mexico in 1996, Greg Dotson got a call about working for Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif. He flew to Washington, bought a suit when he landed, and soon had a job.

Now the Democratic staff director for two subcommittees, he leads his boss’s efforts to make headway on climate change. “Climate is the big area of unfinished policy right now,” Dotson says.

The odds against getting a climate bill through Congress are long. But Dotson notes that Waxman has spent years in the minority and has still managed to strike bipartisan deals. And staffers can play a role in that. “We’re encouraged to think creatively,” he says.

 

Dotson, 44, has a degree in English from Virginia Tech and a degree in environmental law from the University of Oregon. He and his wife, Janine Benner, who works for Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, have a 20-month-old daughter.
