Show & Tell: Brandon McKoy talks about his new job in Washington, D.C.

Brandon McKoy recently announced he is leaving his role as president of New Jersey Policy Perspective to become vice president of state partnerships at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington, D.C.

He talked about his time at NJPP and what he hopes to accomplish going forward — including working with NJPP.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to lead NJPP through this deeply transformative chapter. Over the last few years, we have grown substantially — in funding, size and influence — and radically reshaped the narrative on the role of state budgets in advancing racial equity. While this is a bittersweet moment, my new position will provide me a platform to counsel, strengthen and resource NJPP and other state think tanks across the country so that they are better able to model our success.”
