On the Hill: From Stonehill to the West Wing

April 3, 2017


Stonehill alum David Simas '92 joined us recently to record the debut episode of our new podcast: On the Hill.

For the past eight years, Simas served in the Obama White House as a senior advisor and political director and is now working as CEO for the Obama Foundation.

Simas recalls his time at the College, his journey from Stonehill to the White House, a memorable trip to Portugal with President Obama, and his role in the rollout of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).

Guest hosting the first episode of On the Hill is Stonehill professor and director of the Martin Institute for Law & Society Peter Ubertaccio.
