NEW CANAAN, Conn. – New Canaan resident Carol Platt Liebau took over the reins of the conservative Yankee Institute for Public Policy last month as its new president.
Liebau replaces Fergus Cullen, the former head of the New Hampshire Republican Party, who was the institute’s executive director for the last five years.
Former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, who chairs the Yankee Institute’s board of directors, said Liebau was chosen from a group of about 30 candidates from across the country. When Cullen was interviewed for the job he was the only candidate.
That’s a testament to how far the organization has come over the years with establishing itself as a reputable nonprofit think-tank, Simmons said.
