CQ Changes

From an internal email:

    I am pleased to announce that Dave Clarke, co-editor of CQ’s highly successful Budget Tracker, will join Jodi Schneider’s Economics and Finance team as a budget and appropriations reporter. Dave has worked closely with Chuck Conlon to bring Budget Tracker subscribers’ timely insights about budget and appropriations developments in Congress. Dave has a sophisticated and in-depth understanding of the congressional budget process and there is little doubt his knowledge will enrich our budget coverage. Over more than six years at CQ, Dave has held several critical positions. He spent a year as a web producer for CQ.com and was part of the reporting team that brought CQ Homeland Security to subscribers in September 2002. His first position for CQ was as a BillWatch reporter. Dave interned at CBS MarketWatch.com and covered the North Carolina congressional delegation for the Durham Herald-Sun while completing his masters’ degree in journalism at Northwestern University’s Medill program. He also covered the technology industry for PCWorld.com. Before entering journalism, Dave worked on the technical side of online publishing at Keane Inc. and Scout Electromedia in San Francisco. Dave is a graduate of Trinity College. His first day in his new position will be April 30.
