The Wikipedia entry on Eric Nelson includes a lot of information on him. For instance, we know he was once a member of the Democratic Leadership Council in the US Senate, a position he held from 2009-2012. His Wikipedia page describes him as “a former US Senator from Florida” and suggests he was born in Miami. We also learn that he is a former chief of staff to Vice President Biden. This suggests a role in the Obama administration.
Nelson was once a member of the Democratic Leadership Council in the US Senate, a position he held from 2009-2012. He also served as a member of the US House of Representatives from Florida from 1992-1995. Wikipedia suggests he was born in Miami.
The website reveals he is an attorney, although he doesn’t name the law firm where he practices. He also suggests he’s a former Chief Executive Officer of the American Federation of Government Employees. This has a very low probability of being true, but given the circumstances of his Wikipedia page, I’m not convinced.
Wikipedia says he was born in Miami, but if that is true, I doubt that would be a great reason to give him a Wikipedia page. Wikipedia states hes been a lawyer in Florida since 1992. He was, until 2007, the Chief Executive Officer of the American Federation of Government Employees. But he left to take a position at Pillsbury, the company that created the highly successful Pillsbury Doughboy cookie. That seems to have paid off, judging by the Wikipedia picture of the cookie.
This is one of those rare things where you can find a bunch of info about a person on the internet that doesn’t seem to have any relation to the person. Apparently, Eric was the Chief Executive Officer of the American Federation of Government Employees from 1995-2007, and he left to take a position at Pillsbury for a few months due to the company making a change in management. But, he was still a member of the Federation himself.
Eric Nelson was also a former member of the American Civil Liberties Union, and was a member of the board of directors at the time of his exit. He also chaired the Federation’s legal committee until he left. While he was a member of the ACLU, Eric never attended an ACLU event, and he made no political donations to the ACLU.
Nelson’s public position was as a lawyer, and he was also a “citizen lawyer.” This doesn’t mean he was a lawyer, but that he was a person who was allowed to operate under the law. It’s interesting that he never attended an ACLU event, and while he was a member of the Federation his membership status was not formally registered in the organization.
The ACLU is not a political organization, but a legal one. For Eric, it was more like a social organization. But as Eric’s legal career took off, he began to advocate for legal issues that other members of the organization found important. This, along with his interest in the law, led him to become a member of the legal committee.
Eric is a lawyer and an attorney. He was also a member of the ACLU’s national board of directors and has helped the organization with litigation. He’s also a licensed attorney in his state of Delaware. The rest of us are just concerned that he might be a lawyer.
Eric has been a member of the ACLU for over 10 years. He’s been on the national board of directors for more than 6 years now. He was also a member of the board of directors for our state of Delaware.
