The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty announced that it has brought on Capitol veteran Cameron Sholty to lead its outreach efforts as WILL continues to expand its operations as a public interest law center and policy organization dedicated to promoting the public interest in free markets, limited government, individual liberty, and a robust civil society, including a strong system of K-12 education characterized by rigor, diversity and freedom for families.
Sholty has been a legislative aide in the Wisconsin State Legislature for eight years, having served as Chief of Staff in Assembly leadership and most recently as Communications Director in the State Senate.
“We are excited to have Cameron join our team. His experience as staff in the Legislature and in issue advocacy will certainly be an asset as WILL continues to grow and impact public policy,” noted Rick Esenberg, President of WILL.
Prior to his work in the State Legislature, Sholty was Wisconsin State Director for FreedomWorks, a Washington, DC-based grassroots organization. There he developed outreach strategies to mobilize concerned citizens to impact public debates on issues like school choice, social security reform, tax reform, and tort reform.
“I look forward to working with the great team here at WILL. Already having a substantial impact on public policy, it’s exciting to see the opportunities for the organization and it’s a real privilege to be a part of it,” said Sholty.
As Director of Communications, Sholty will develop and implement strategies that increase WILL’s engagement with policy makers and opinion leaders in the community and across the state.
