On Saturday, September 24th, Samir Becic met with some of the top political thinkers of our generation including Presidential candidates, Governors, Senators, Congresspeople, and Mayors during #TribFest22. Among them were Karl Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to George W. Bush, and Robert Gibbs, former White House Press Secretary under the Obama Administration. The two men were in Austin for a special panel moderated by Texas Tribune’s CEO, Evan Smith (our October Man of the Month!).
The event, held in the iconic Paramount Theatre, saw the two political strategists discuss the current state of politics in America. Mr. Rove and Mr. Gibbs had many insightful thoughts on what they predict is going to happen during the impending mid-term elections. After hearing about their past experiences in politics, Samir noted how refreshing it was to “see individuals on opposite sides of the political spectrum have a debate about important topics while remaining civil, fact-based, and respectful.” Samir continued “This is the America that I love.”
Following the riveting discussion, Samir was able to get some one-on-one time with both Karl Rove and Robert Gibbs to talk about the escalating political situation in his home country of Bosnia and Herzegovina. During this time, he presented each with a copy of his health and fitness book “ReSync Your Life.” Each was grateful and gracious when being presented with the gift from Samir.
