Rosenberg drove a Yellow Cab in Chicago; worked on the Better Government Association/Chicago Sun-Times Pulitzer-finalist Mirage Tavern probe; helped elect reform alderman Marion Volini of Edgewater to the Chicago City Council; cut his teeth as a suburban reporter for Lerner Newspapers covering regional airport issues; and was a point man for suburban mayors battling Daley II on airport planning. He did airport-related work in Seattle; was a Seattle Times op-ed columnist and a national writer; and a blogging pioneer regionally and nationally. He worked at a Gates-funded surface transportation think tank which helped bring to life a new deep-bored tunnel and road-charging policies. He founded and guided news advocacy start-ups supporting the Washington State business community; and was senior editor of a Mozilla-backed online daily global news magazine promoting open systems and open government. An inveterate hiker in the PNW and Mountain West, he has worked in public policy, advocacy, journalism, and communications for more than three decades
