Tori Gorman
Policy Director

Tori Gorman is the Policy Director for The Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to educating the public about federal budget issues and their consequences for the future. The Concord Coalition was founded in 1992 by the late U.S. Senators Warren Rudman (R-NH) and Paul Tsongas (D-MA), and former Secretary of Commerce Peter G. Peterson.

Ms. Gorman joined Concord after a 16-year career on Capitol Hill where she held director-level positions advising senior members of the budget, appropriations, and tax writing committees in the House and Senate. Her efforts across the aisle on budget process, entitlement, and tax reforms established her reputation for bipartisanship and fiscal responsibility. Prior to her career in the federal legislative branch, Ms. Gorman was the economist for the Maryland General Assembly.

Ms. Gorman has a B.A. in economics and an M.S. in applied economics and finance from the University of California-Santa Cruz.
