Gridiron Elects New Officers

Gridiron elections were Saturday. The new president is NJ White House Correspondent George Condon. He previously wrote for Copley News Service and the San Diego Union-Tribune. Claim to fame: His bio says he led the reporting team that earned the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for coverage of the corruption of California GOP Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham. Condon isn’t a novice at this sort of leadership role — he’s former President of the White House Correspondents’ Association.

The other officers:

Vice President, Chuck Lewis of Hearst
Treasurer, Robin Sproul of ABC News
Secretary, Carl Leubsdorf of Dallas Morning News.

The speakers at Saturday’s Winter Dinner were Newark Mayor Cory Booker for the Democrats and Tim Pawlenty for the Republicans. The outgoing president is Susan Page of USA Today. The club was founded in 1885.
