A Republican activist who worked on Ronald Reagan's 1980 presidential campaign is returning to his native Nebraska to discuss what he describes as perks given to presidents at taxpayer expense.
Robert Keith Gray says spending on presidential chefs, movie projectionists and other personal aides has grown with every administration. He is scheduled to speak Friday at noon at the Gray Center for Communications Arts at Hastings College.
Gray is originally from Hastings and worked for years as a Washington lobbyist and public relations executive. He served as deputy director of the Reagan-Bush presidential campaign.
