About Ed Cohen
Ed is a former award-winning newspaper and magazine reporter and editor who for the past three years has directed communications/marketing for a national nonprofit and nonpartisan organization in the justice field that is based in Reno.
In 2018 he was honored as the employee who best exemplifies all five of the organization’s core values: integrity, leadership, justice, excellence and innovation.
The name of that organization does not appear here because Ed wouldn’t want anyone to get the idea that this organization favors any particular political party, movement or person. Even him.
Earlier in his career, Ed served for 10+ years as associate editor of the highly regarded Notre Dame Magazine of the University of Notre Dame. He later spent three years writing for Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business, named the No. 1 undergraduate business school in the nation by U.S. News & World Report during his tenure.
Ed has most often voted for Democrats, but he has been an independent (non-partisan) voter almost all of his adult life. And he believes that no party holds a monopoly on good or bad ideas, or good or bad people.
He and his wife of 38 years, Sue, an educator, have two grown children and recently welcomed their first grandchild, widely considered to be the most adorable baby on earth.
Ed stays active by injuring himself. He has broken his foot, fingers, wrist (twice), neck, and arm (the last while running). He’s also had a concussion. In 2019 he tried skydiving .
Twice Ed and Sue have chosen to move to beautiful Northern Nevada, and they intend to live here the rest of their lives. Except for when Ed is in Washington, proudly representing the Second Congressional District and working to Make Lying Wrong Again.
