Doug Gramiak joined Education Voters of Delaware as its first executive director in January 2009 after spending nearly eight years as executive assistant to former Lt. Governor John Carney. There he served as chief of staff and helped create the award-winning initiative “Models of Excellence in Education,” which recognized and shared programs that have raised student achievement in Delaware’s schools. Additionally, Doug worked on issues such as health care, economic development and renewable energy, while handling constituent relations inquiries, working with the General Assembly and managing the office’s budget.
Doug joined Lt. Governor Carney after spending more than a decade in the newspaper business, including two years at The News Journal in Delaware, where he was the political editor, and nearly a decade at the Delaware County Daily Times in southeastern Pennsylvania, where he started in the sports department and spent time as the editorial page editor before becoming the day city editor. Prior to that, Doug graduated from Swarthmore College and worked for former Congressman Bob Edgar of Pennsylvania and on the presidential campaign of the late Senator Paul Simon of Illinois. Doug lives in Wilmington with his wife Stephanie and children, Carter and Margo. He serves on the board of directors for West End Neighborhood House in Wilmington as well as the regional advisory board for the Salvation Army.

Ya know, these SOBs will have to wear this.
Thanks for the recap. I have been swimming in the who’s who of all of these corpro-education reform Board, Advisory Board memberships for a few weeks now. It is bedtime reading of printouts and highlight pens and what is revealed is that it is mostly the same faces, corps. and orgs in a revolving door to these board rooms of power.
