Heartland Editor

Gayle Putrich

Gayle is the Heartland Editor at Rare. She grew up in the Midwest and graduated from Kent State University. Having traveled the world covering defense, Congress, American manufacturing and more, her passion remains explaining what’s going on in D.C. to the rest of the country (and trying to explain the rest of the country to Washingtonians). Ask her how she feels about the federal budget, but be prepared for a very long answer.
