Nathan Mehrens announced as new Americans for Limited Government president

May 13, 2013, Fairfax,VA—Americans for Limited Government introduced Nathan Mehrens as the new president of the government watchdog group.

Mehrens who served as ALG’s General Counsel overseeing an extensive government oversight operation succeeds Bill Wilson who will maintain a strategic role in the organization as a member of the Board of Directors.

“Bill has left some big shoes to fill, and I look forward to meeting the challenges posed by an Obama Administration determined to expand the size and scope of government using regulation, executive orders, failing to defend existing law against legal attacks by the left, and legislative actions at all levels of government.

“Americans for Limited Government is needed more today than at any time in history.”

Mehrens has led the investigatory team that received international attention with the revelation that EPA Administrator nominee had approved the use of an automobile air conditioning coolant that has been called a “killer refrigerant” by Green Party leaders in Germany.

Additionally, the government accountability project that he has led broke the story that the Veteran’s Administration currently employs more than 250 full time employees who do not work for the government, instead spending all of their time working for various public employee unions.

Mehrens has previously served in management, legal, and policy positions with several advocacy organizations and the federal government.

Wilson enthusiastically endorsed Mehrens’ selection stating, “Nathan is an extraordinary individual who will take Americans for Limited Government to the next level as a leader in exposing the damage being done to our nation by the ever-expanding government monolith.”

The change takes effect today.
