PPA takes on new policy expert

Too Close To Tell

The Poker Players Alliance takes another step forward in its fight for the American right to play poker, both online and off.

Drew Lesofski, former senior federal policy adviser from Washington, D.C., has joined the PPA as director of Grassroots and External Affairs. His previous position under Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons had him dealing with a variety of issues, such as immigration, health care, education and gaming.

This is not Lesofski's first involvement with a grassroots political organization. He had worked and volunteered with a number of local, state and federal campaigns prior to his tenure in Washington.

Alfonse D'Amato, chairman of the PPA, welcomed Lesofski by saying, "As we get closer to reaching the million-member milestone, it is more important than ever for PPA to find new ways to energize and mobilize our members. Drew's policy and political campaign experience will be an asset to PPA as we further refine and augment our grassroots program."
