More or less as a public service, here’s a message I just received. I am apparently on the GOP media list, which is fine with me. (I’ve removed her phone number.)
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to you and your media outlets. My name is Lindsey Mask, and I am assisting with women’s media at the GOP National Convention in Tampa. Throughout this week, there will be several briefings, panels and events, which I will be sure to share as they come, and there are a number of dynamic women available for on-the-record interviews, etc.
Just as an example, there is a briefing set for tomorrow afternoon (official media advisory pending) with the following details:
Press Briefing for the Women and Family Press Corps
Monday, August 27 at 1p.m. in the Press Conference Room (18/19 in the Tampa Convention Center)
The following Republican leaders will be available for on-the-record comment:
Courtney Johnson, Director of Women’s Outreach, Romney for President
Jovita Carranza, Former Deputy Small Business Administration Administrator
Karin Agness, Founder of Network of enlightened Women (NeW)
Cherylyn Harley LeBon, Senior Advisor for Women & Family Media, Romney for President
I hope this is helpful! I am looking forward to being in touch this week and helping you identify people for your coverage. Please feel free to call or email me at any time as well: [email protected] or [phone number].

If you’re wondering, according to their Web site, the Network of Enlightened Women is the
nation’s premier organization for culturally conservative women. Started as a book club at the University of Virginia in 2004, NeW cultivates a community of conservative women and expands intellectual diversity on college campuses through its focus on education. NeW members meet regularly to discuss issues relating to politics, gender and conservative principles. NeW has expanded to over 20 college campuses nationwide.
