AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation announced today that David Reaboi has joined the Foundation’s Right on Crime campaign as Strategic Communications Director.

Right on Crime is a nationally recognized effort to support effective, proven and conservative reforms to the criminal justice system on both state and federal levels. Since 2010, Right on Crime has been successful in promoting policy ideas to reduce crime and maintain public safety while lowering costs to the taxpayer and emphasizing restitution to victims.

“It’s not often that public policy programs are truly both common-sense and innovative,” Mr. Reaboi said, “and the work done at Right on Crime and at TPPF is is both. I’m excited and honored to be at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, working with inspiring professionals on the crucial mission of bringing conservative reforms to a criminal justice system that sorely needs it.”

David Reaboi comes to the Texas Public Policy Foundation from the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC, where he served for six years as Vice-President for Strategic Communications. He is a Lincoln Fellow at the Claremont Institute.

Marc Levin, Right on Crime’s Policy Director, as well as the Director of the Center for Effective Justice at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, said: “He brings a lot of experience in communications, media relationships and strategic thinking to everything he does. With David on board, we look forward to supporting proven, conservative reforms to more states across America.”

“We’re pleased to welcome David to the Right on Crime movement,” said Chuck DeVore, Vice President of Policy at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “He spent his time in Washington shaping policy in new and innovative ways. He will be a valuable addition to the team.”
