Former Florida congressman Allen West has been named CEO of the Dallas-based National Center for Policy Analysis, which was founded in 1983 to develop private, free-market alternatives to reforming everything from healthcare to pensions to education.

“I am humbled and honored to have this opportunity to lead one of the country’s preeminent think tanks,” West said in a statement, adding that he has “long admired the NCPA’s innovative research in health care, tax reform, entitlements, retirement, energy, environmental and education policy.” 

Elected to Congress in 2010, West served one (outspoken) term before being narrowly defeated in 2012. Now, it looks as though another run for public office is not in his immediate future: He will relocate to Dallas to take the reins of the NCPA early next year.
