Northbrook, Illinois – On Tuesday morning, Haym Salomon Center Chairman and President Paul Miller announced the addition of Helene Miller-Walsh to the news and public policy group’s Board of Directors.
“I am honored to announce that Helene has enthusiastically accepted the position and is already bringing wonderful ideas to the table, expanding even further the Salomon Center’s work on defending Western civilization,” said Miller. “I have known Helene for over a decade. She is a person of the highest integrity and character. You will find no greater advocate for freedom, America and Israel than Helene.”
Miller-Walsh is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Leenie Productions, LLC, a multi-media production company. She is on the Board of Advisors of Project HOOD, an organization dedicated to ending gang violence in the city of Chicago and developing career opportunities. With a long track record of success in philanthropic endeavors, Miller-Walsh has chaired campaigns for Prentice Women’s Hospital through her role on the board of Friends of Prentice, as well as co-chairing one of the most successful private school annual campaigns in history at The Latin School of Chicago.
“I was honored to be asked by Paulie to join the Haym Salomon Center. The work they are doing is invaluable, especially when it comes to exposing anti-Semitism and defending Western values,” explained Walsh. “I cannot stress enough how important it is to get beyond simply preaching to the choir and actually change minds. Only the Salomon Center is doing that, and I am proud to be a part of it.”
Miller-Walsh is not new to the world of policy and politics. She and her husband, former congressman and current syndicated talk-radio host Joe Walsh, just recently celebrated their eleventh wedding anniversary.
Miller-Walsh is filling a board position vacated by former Chairman John Tsarpalas who stepped down recently to become President of the Nevada Policy Research Institute. The Salomon Center expects to further expand its board before the end of the year.
The story of the Haym Salomon Center (HSC) is part and parcel of the unfolding story of the American press.
In just over two years, HSC has grown from a two-person startup to a team of reporters and Fellows producing news and opinion content from a pro-Western, pro-democracy viewpoint for publication in the mainstream and new media outlets. Their work combating anti-Semtism, Islamic terrorism and defending Western values, has been published everywhere from USA Today and the New York Daily News to Fox News, The Hill and the Wall Street Journal.
Where others are preaching to the choir, HSC is looking for converts – and to reinforce the natural, pro-Western inclinations that most Americans don’t even know they have. As the media business continues to undergo major convulsions, the left is latching on to a non-profit production model of journalism – publishing leftist stories funded by George Soros in outlets like the New York Times and Huffington Post. HSC is the only journalism non-profit (501(C)3) producing quality content from your worldview specifically for placement in legacy and new media – combating a false and dangerous narrative.
