“Entering the White House”
Guest: Greg Jenkins – Founder, North Bay Strategies; Deputy Assistant to George W. Bush
Two former White House aides—one from each major party—break down what a presidential transition looks like from the inside. As a former deputy assistant to President George W. Bush, Greg Jenkins traveled the world helping to craft and hone a president’s message. Dole fellow Johanna Maska, who held a similar role for President Obama, will lead a discussion on the demands of working in the White House as the beginning of a new administration.
About spring 2017 Discussion Groups: Fresh off a dramatic election season, KU alums Henry “C.J.” Jackson (POLITICO) and Johanna Maska (former White House Director of Press Advance) will examine and interpret the first 100 days of the Trump administration as they happen. Jackson and Maska will welcome a who’s-who of Washington insiders and reporters to explore a complex season in U.S. politics.
