Seen & Heard

A selection of must reads about Dartmouth alumni making news around the world.
Lis Smith ’05

Master of Spin

“There’s nobody more fun to get spun by than Lis Smith,” writes New York. “A hard-rockin’, quick-draw political operative... She has a sharp answer for everything, and an unnerving nerviness. And yet … is she really tearing up when I ask her about working for Governor Cuomo during his ​​auto-da-fé last year?”

In an interview pegged to the upcoming publication of her memoir, Smith spoke about her time advising former New York governor Andrew Cuomo and much else. Of her book, she said, “Sure, there are people who won’t hire me after reading it. The decision I made was that, I don’t give a f***. If you think I’m good at what I do, you’ll hire me. If this bothers you, then you weren’t worth my time anyway.”

Smith was the subject of a Dartmouth Alumni Magazine cover story in 2020.
