If you need help drafting press releases, writing op-eds, drawing up social media tweets and posts, I’d recommend Dan Radmacher, a great freelance media writer and pro. I’ve been really impressed by the quality of his work, super-fast turnaround time and his work ethic. In his work for us, he’s written about environmental issues, but the guy is just really smart — he built his news career writing about much more than the environment, and I’d trust him to write or strategize on any issue. He does his homework, and he’s the easiest to work with.

Chris OBrion is an editorial cartoonist whose progressive opinions, wit and artistic talents will benefit any left-of-center publication or website. He is a funny man who is passionate about what he believes. He never resorts to gag cartoons or mean-spirited attacks. Instead, he distills complicated, controversial ideas down to clear, simple opinions conveyed through visual art that makes people laugh. As his editor for five years on a Virginia newspaper, I was impressed daily with Chris’s ability to consistently come up with creative ways to bring attention to issues that included environmental destruction, social justice, race relations, the growth and development policies pushed by local and state governments and issues involving the health and welfare of children.

Chris OBrion has the ability to lay bare hypocrisy with a few perceptive words and images. There is always more substance to his work than I’m initially aware of, and we always get a tremendous reaction when we run his cartoons and illustrations in the Teamster magazine.
