AWB Hires Bobbi Cussins as Communications Manager

She also worked as the communications director for the Washington Restaurant Association, and was most recently a senior public information officer and grassroots coordinator in the state House of Representatives. Her issue focus in the Legislature was K-12 education funding and reform, including the McCleary obligations that will be heavily debated in the 2015 legislative session.

Cussins is a graduate of Humboldt State University with degrees in journalism and Spanish. She lives in Tumwater.
