Executive Vice President
Hired: December 2014
Previous Experience: Worked for CEO Tom McCabe at the Building Industry Association of Washington (BIAW). Under McCabe’s leadership, the BIAW mutated into a rabid political machine funded by a scheme that siphoned money from Washington’s workers’ compensation program. McCabe said, “We want to do to government what government agencies have done to many of our members – shut them down. I personally yearn for the day when the mammoth state Department of Labor and Industries is closed down, windows shuttered, with weeds growing all over its sprawling campus.” On the hook for dropping $6 million of BIAW’s money into Dino Rossi’s failed gubernatorial campaign, McCabe agreed to leave the organization. Minnich rejoined McCabe at the Freedom Foundation. Minnich also worked as a legislative assistant to Sen. Mitch McConnell.
