When Van Jones ascended to the position of Special Advisor for Green Jobs, very few people were surprised. Jones has been a champion of the green jobs movement for years as the founder of Green For All. An article that appeared yesterday on Slate’s TheBigMoney.com takes an in-depth look at Jones and his journey over the past few years.
Chadwick Matlin looks back to 2004 when Jones called President Obama a “hero”, has a list of several different “Vanisms”, and links to a variety of articles about Jones. By the end of the article, readers are left feeling that they know Jones on a personal level. Matlin is able to capture Jones’ personality and he translates it to print very well.
