MONTPELIER – Linda E. Markin, chair of the board of Public Assets Institute, announced that Cornelius “Con” Hogan of Plainfield has joined the board. A non-partisan nonprofit with offices in Montpelier, Public Assets Institute is Vermont’s premier independent state budget and tax research organization and the source for timely and in-depth state fiscal and policy analysis.

“Public Assets Institute is growing, and we’re delighted to have Con and his wealth of knowledge and experience in the public, private, and non-profit sectors on the board to help with that process,” said Markin, who is also CFO of Concept 2 in Morrisville.

“Public Assets Institute researches and brings to light the facts about Vermont’s fiscal condition for the benefit of all Vermonters,” Hogan noted. “Good policy requires solid, factual information, and I’m pleased to help out on the board to support this important work.”

Hogan has served as a Senior Fellow with the Center for the Study of Social Policy, a Senior Consultant for the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a faculty member of the National Governor’s Association Center for Best Practice, a Director of Fletcher Allen Health Care, Chair of the National Advisory Committee for the Robert Wood Johnson initiative for Strengthening Families through health care access, a member of the Advisory Committee for the National Center for Children in Poverty, and as a consultant to the Children’s Defense Fund on a health insurance program for all children.

He holds a Master’s Degree in Government Administration from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Vermont, where he presented the commencement address for the graduating UVM Class of 2000. He is the author or co-author of six books.
