James Scimecca

Press Secretary

I love working for FGA because my efforts are making a tangible difference in the lives of my fellow citizens. We help more people secure better jobs and bigger paychecks, allowing them to experience a higher quality of life.

James Scimecca is the press secretary at the Foundation for Government Accountability, where he focuses on building FGA’s media presence and relations.

Prior to joining FGA, James served as communications manager at the New American Economy and as a communications associate at the National Campus Leadership Council. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Master of Arts in Political Communication from American University.

James first experienced work as a camp counselor at a summer theater camp. The fact that a job is the bedrock of the American Dream—but that it so easily can be taken for granted—motivates James as he shares the story of work’s power to provide dignity and freedom.

James, a fan of liberty, karaoke, and the New York Yankees and Jets, lives in Budd Lake, New Jersey.
