Washington, D.C.—The National Conference of State Legislatures has selected Mick Bullock, former director of communications and press secretary for Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, as public affairs director in its Washington, D.C. office.
Bullock will head the organization's D.C. public affairs efforts, working with local, regional and national news media to share information about NCSL's work. He will coordinate media relations efforts with NCSL’s Denver public affairs director, Jane Carroll Andrade. Bullock will also work on marketing and membership outreach strategies to promote the organization's services to state legislators and legislative staff through NCSL's magazine, newsletters, publications, social media channels, website and blog. Bullock will also work with communications staff from state legislatures across the country.
“Mick brings a wealth of experience to NCSL and we will look to him for innovative ways to ensure that states are heard in Washington, D.C.,” said William Pound, NCSL’s executive director. “We are fortunate to have someone leading our media efforts in the nation’s capitol who is familiar with NCSL and can work with state legislators and legislative staff across the country.”
Bullock has 10 years of communication experience, serving as Bryant's director of communications in the Office of Governor since 2011. Bullock also served as communications director for Bryant when he was lieutenant governor and state auditor. While in the lieutenant governor's office, Bullock had the opportunity to work with NCSL and Mississippi legislators.
