Spartan Considerations, launched in 2014, is a decidedly left-of-center blog that features essays on global, national, state, and local public affairs and political issues.


The primary writer is a former political pollster and current communications researcher and strategist with 30 years of experience in the field.


The Baltimore Sun, via their “Mobbies” awards (an “annual celebration of Maryland’s blog and social media communities”) recognized Spartan Considerations as the 8th “wonkiest blog or account” of 2014.  


The present author resides in Columbia, Maryland where he spends his free time reading about progressive and socialist movements in the United States and Great Britain.  He also serves as an occasional co-host of the Forward Maryland podcast.
