TNCA Appoints Mary Mancini E.D.

Nashville, Tenn. (July 6, 2010) -- Tennessee Citizen Action (TNCA), Tennessee's premier public interest and consumer advocacy organization, announced today the appointment of Mary Mancini as its new Executive Director.

"As a nonprofit serving the citizens of Tennessee, TNCA required a combination of vision, compassion and management expertise in its leader," said Karla Hewitt, TNCA's Board President. "Mary has just this combination. Her wealth of private and community experience and commitment to the health and well-being of all Tennesseans - and not just a select few - will be valuable assets in our ongoing efforts to protect consumers from abusive business practices and preserve their access to a responsive civil justice system."

Mancini joins TNCA with a background in communications, experience in navigating through the state legislative process, and the ability to mobilize communities through grass-roots organizing and campaigns. Most recently she served as election integrity activist and co-producer of the documentary film, UNCOUNTED: The New Math of American Elections, as well as founder and president of Great Minds Media, LLC, the company behind Liberadio(!) and Liberadio.com, Middle Tennessee's award-winning progressive public affairs radio show.

"I am thrilled to be working with a well-established organization that is known for its deep-rooted and unyielding commitment to the people of Tennessee," Mancini said, "Continuing TNCA's dedication to the fiscal stability and independence of the consumer, workplace health and safety, clean air and water, increasing civic engagement in traditionally underserved populations, and representing the people's interests in the state legislature is my utmost priority as we move forward."
