BECKY BAILEY POMPONIO
FLORIDA & VIRGINIA REPRESENTATIVE
For more than 20 years Becky Bailey Pomponio worked as a radio anchor, reporter and talk show host for the Mutual Broadcasting System, the NBC Radio Network and Voice of America. She then took her award-winning media skills to Capitol Hill in Washington where she served as Press Secretary to Congresswoman Louise Slaughter of New York and as Communications Director for Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland. Later, as Director of Public Affairs for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and then the United States Mint, Becky was responsible for the high media and public profile of these large organizations. Now retired, Becky Bailey Pomponio finds herself busier than ever, helping her small Blue Ridge community and Project Coyote.
Becky became interested in the plight of America’s native song dogs, upon hearing them nightly in the woods surrounding her home in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains and has studied them extensively. She helps Project Coyote in its political and public outreach strategy as well as on state campaigns. Becky divides her time between Florida and Virginia, after her long career in media and public affairs in Washington D.C.
