This past Wednesday, a recent Thomas Aquinas College graduate, Josh Altic (’12), appeared on the PBS News Hour to discuss some of the more notable ballot initiatives that voters — both in California and across the United States — will decide at the polls on Tuesday. Among the topics he discussed were marijuana legalization, healthcare, and gun control. See the video in the player above.

Mr. Altic is an associate project director at Ballotpedia, an online, nonpartisan encyclopedia of American politics that aims to provide accurate and neutral election information to the country’s voters. He first began working there in 2012 as an assistant staff writer, before being promoted to his current role, in which he covers local ballot measures, elections, and tax measures. At Ballotpedia he works with two fellow alumni, Colin O’Keefe (’12), the organization’s chief operating officer, and Elisabeth Moore (’14), a staff writer. Additionally he is working toward a doctorate at the Institute for Philosophic Studies at the University of Dallas.
