In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Winslow served on the following committees:


Governing accolade

In May 2011, Governing Magazine named Winslow one of 17 "GOP Legislators to Watch." Each of the legislators was selected on the basis of qualities like leadership, ambition, and political potential.[1]

Americans Elect

In the 2012 presidential election, Winslow served as general counsel of Americans Elect, an organization whose stated goal is "to nominate a presidential ticket that answers directly to voters—not the political system." Winslow, whose duty was to help the organization achieve ballot access in all 50 states, was occasionally listed as Americans Elect's secretary for legal purposes.[2][3] The group's attempt to form a "nonpartisan presidential ticket" through an online process ceased when no candidate reached 10,000 votes.[4][3] The organization has been criticized and accused of tax and campaign finance violations for not revealing their donors. When confronted with the question, Winslow responded in a tweet, "How so? Why do you think the “Indians” wore facepaint when poking the British King in the eye? AE is fully complying with the law.”[5]
