Former Heritage staffer making waves

The Hill just can’t get enough of former Heritage staffer, Paul Winfree.

This week, Roll Call released a piece titled Rising Stars 2017: Administration Staffers which highlighted Winfree’s impact in the Trump administration.

A decade ago, Paul Winfree took his first post-college job as a policy analyst at the conservative Heritage Foundation. Today, he serves as deputy director of the White House Domestic Policy Council and director of budget policy for President Donald Trump.

…After a stint at the Senate Budget Committee, he returned to Heritage, where he took the lead in writing a 165-page “Blueprint for Balance” proposal to wipe out the deficit. The plan served as a resource for the Trump transition team, of which Winfree was a member.

Winfree says he leapt at the chance to join the administration, seeing an “incredible opportunity” to develop policy.

But he notes: “I work in policy because I want to have an impact. I want public policy to be based around a trust in adults to act responsibly, while being respectful of individual freedoms through choice.”

We are thankful for Winfree’s service at Heritage and excited about his opportunity to work in the Trump Administration.

What do you think the budget priorities of the Trump Administration should be?
