He was formerly a policy analyst with the National Conference of State Legislatures and focused on the interface between private organizations and governmental units. Drew has a specialized knowledge of local governments from a national perspective. "When you spend a lot of time riding in patrol cars with sheriff's deputies, or seeing what it takes to staff a municipal public health facility or planning office, you get first-hand experience of how local governments work and learn where the policy meets the public. Our team is forever cognizant of the relationship between state and federal policy--the people who implement the policy and the
people who are impacted by these directives at the State and local level," Geiger has said. He is formally the Communications Director for the Montana Department of Commerce and former lead staff to the Economic Affairs Committee. Mr. Geiger has a Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Akron in Ohio.
