The Center for New Revenue, a North Carolina not-for-profit corporation, is interested in new and more sensible revenue, primarily taxes.
My work history is at Pat Oglesby CV September 2013 (right click).
Here’s the government tax policy part: I worked for the Joint Congressional Committee on Taxation from 1982 to 1988, first as a Legislation Attorney and then as the Foreign Tax Counsel. Then into early 1990, thanks to Senator Lloyd Bentsen, a great American, I held the position of Chief Tax Counsel of the Committee on Finance of the United States Senate — a learning experience for a technician.
Before all that, I practiced law with the firm of Covington and Burling in Washington, D.C., and was a law clerk for Judge John Minor Wisdom on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans.
In addition to directing the Center for New Revenue, I practice law and consult, including a recent, limited stint with the Marijuana Project that the BOTEC Analysis Corporation did for the State of Washington.
I live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with my wife. We have a grown daughter.
