The nation’s best-selling personal finance author, Newsweek columnist Jane Bryant Quinn, wrote, “William Mencarow is an expert on real estate notes.” He has managed over a dozen political campaigns and currently consults on select campaigns. He spent most of his career in Washington, DC, where he worked in the Executive Office of the President and in the US Congress as the Republican Counsel and Staff Director of the US House Subcommittee on Government Operations. He also served as the press secretary and legislative director for members of Congress. He was instrumental in Congressman Ron Paul’s legislation that created the American Eagle Gold and Silver Coins. He says his greatest political career achievement was being personally attacked by Pravda, the official newspaper of the Soviet Union, which he regards as a badge of honor.
