Delegate Mark Keam Selected as One of Nation's Top Pro-Growth Progressive LeadersToday, Virginia Delegate Mark Keam was selected as one of ten rising leaders from across the country to join the NewDEAL, a newly launched national network that is committed to highlighting innovative ideas from state and local elected leaders who are pro-growth progressives. Governor Martin O'Malley of Maryland and U.S. Senator Mark Begich of Alaska, Honorary Co-Chairs of the NewDEAL, recognized Delegate Keam for his leadership in passing a tax incentive for employers who create clean energy jobs. "Senator Begich and I have joined the NewDEAL because we believe we need to look for fresh ideas not just from the top down in Washington, but also from the bottom up, where innovative leaders like Mark Keam are developing and testing their ideas out on the ground," said Governor O'Malley, Honorary Co-Chair of the NewDEAL. "In communities throughout the country, rising state and local leaders such as Mark Keam are proving that you can be both pro-growth and progressive. The NewDEAL is designed to foster these types of ideas and these types of leaders," said Senator Begich, Honorary Co-Chair of the NewDEAL. "I am proud to be recognized by the NewDEAL for my work to pass a win-win common sense solution that will help to create green jobs for the future while welcoming innovators and entrepreneurs to grow Virginia's economy," said Delegate Keam (D-Vienna). Delegate Mark Keam and the other NewDEAL leaders are currently featured in video introductions on the NewDEAL's interactive website, www.NewDEALLeaders.org.
