Putting a face with a name

Dennis Poust , Director of Communications for the New York State Catholic Conference, is profiled here. When asked what issues are of most importance to the Catholic Conference, he replied:
"They range from very liberal to very conservative, politically. All are linked to the fundamental respect for human life. We try to be a voice for the voiceless. The single mother on welfare. The unborn child in the womb. The elderly person in a hospital bed. We try to advocate for them. We get reaction from both sides of the Legislature, but most people respect us for our consistency. They know our positions are grounded."
