Steve Peoples joined Roll Call's Politics team in July 2010 after having spent the previous seven years covering state and regional politics (and some occasional mob activity) at the Providence (R.I.) Journal. He edited his college newspaper while earning a bachelors degree in media studies from the University of Southern Maine. He later earned a masters degree in public affairs from Brown Universitys Taubman Center for Public Policy. A New Hampshire native and avid New England sports fan, Steve refuses to believe the Patriots era of dominance is coming to an end.
