Next-Generation Conservative Group Ramps Up Issue Advocacy Efforts

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The YG Network, a non-profit 501(c)(4) dedicated to promoting next-generation conservative policies, today announced a number of key additions to its policy and communications teams.

“With middle-class Americans continuing to feel the squeeze from Washington’s failed liberal policies, the Young Guns movement has never been more important as a source for next-generation conservative solutions,” said new YG Network Communications Director Chris Bond. “Our new YG Network team members will give a great boost to our already-strong momentum as we promote innovative conservative ideas and support the efforts of forward-looking conservative leaders. Folks can expect big things from YG Network in the weeks and months ahead.”

Kate O’Beirne—well known through her work at National Review, and from her frequent television appearances as a member of CNN’s Capital Gang and a panelist on NBC’s Meet the Press—will serve as an advisor on policy and issue advocacy efforts, focusing on special projects.

Chris Bond—who has served in top communications and strategy roles for highly competitive statewide campaigns in Virginia and Montana, and as Press Secretary for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC)—is YG Network’s new Communications Director.

Michael Ramlet—a prolific policy analyst who has worked with numerous political, non-profit, and private-sector organizations—will serve as a policy advisor, providing analysis and insights on key issues such as health care and economics.

Kristen Soltis Anderson—Vice President of The Winston Group and a regular on television and in print media—will advise YG Network on issue advocacy efforts, including YGN’s Woman Up! initiative.

Mark Bednar serves YG Network as a Communications & Policy Specialist—focusing on rapid response, policy development, and writing the “Morning Buzz” daily email.

The YG Network (YGN) is organized as a non-profit 501(c)(4) dedicated to broadening the Young Guns movement by supporting conservative/center-right policies and the efforts of those who advocate for those policies. Learn more at
