Note: Critical commentary on our governmental structure usually comes from politicians, academics, or lawyers. So as a retired businessman I feel compelled to offer my credentials in hope of convincing the reader that I have experience that would qualify me to join this debate. Hence this detailed CV of my business career. FWK
The author of the Act 2 Reform Blueprint is Frank Keeney, a retired businessman. He attended the University of Washington on an NROTC scholarship, earned membership in Phi Beta Kappa and other academic honorary organizations, and graduated with honors. Before graduation, he passed all four parts of the state CPA examination in one sitting.
Keeney’s career included 3 years on active duty with the US Navy Supply Corps; 22 years working in large companies (including auditing, consulting, sales, financial planning, CFO and Executive Committee roles); and 26 years in small business startups and turnaround situations (as CEO and CFO, including a successful Chapter 11 reorganization with 17 classes of creditors and investors, the sale of a turnaround to American Express and sale of a startup to Qualcomm).
After retirement in 2002, Keeney developed a keen interest in government, reading extensively on the subject which ultimately led to his creating the Act 2 blueprint for reform. His broad business background uniquely prepared him to analyze the structural problems in our government and recommend common sense solutions for them. Throughout his career, he sought professional consulting help as needed to supplement his own experience. In developing the Act 2 reform recommendations he continued this
practice, benefiting from the advice of Robert G. Natelson, a nationally known constitutional scholar whose research has been cited repeatedly in Supreme Court opinions. Keeney also relied on strategic marketing companies for help in starting the Act 2 movement, developing its website and in market testing a number of public outreach programs.
