Partnership for Public Service mourns the loss of board member Cokie Roberts

Beloved author and political commentator Cokie Roberts joined the Partnership’s board of directors in 2004 and served as a valuable contributor to our efforts. Her voice on our country’s rich history and the current political landscape will forever be missed and our deepest condolences go out to her family, friends and loved ones.
