From wikipdeia:
Kenneth L. Khachigian was a former speechwriter for Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.

He received his undergraduate degree, with honors, from UC Santa Barbara and his law degree from Columbia University.

He began his distinguished public service career at the White House at age 25, rising to Deputy Special Assistant under President Richard Nixon. President Ronald Reagan commissioned him Special Consultant to the President in 1981 and - as Chief Speechwriter - a senior White House adviser. Beginning with President Reagan's First Inaugural, Mr. Khachigian collaborated on dozens of major political and policy speeches throughout the President's two terms.

He was a key adviser and strategist for California Governors George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson, and has run several other statewide campaigns. He served as National Senior Adviser to presidential nominee Robert Dole in 1996 and Senator John McCain in 2000. Citing him as "one of the nation's most experienced and respected political and issues strategists," the U.S. Chamber of Commerce retained him as its Fellow for Politics. He is widely quoted in state and national publications and frequently lectures before businesses and associations on government affairs and politics.

He served on the Board of Overseers of the Hoover Institution and as President Reagan's appointee to the National Institute of Justice Advisory Board. He currently sits on the boards of the California Council for Environmental and Economic Balance, the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace Foundation, and the UCSB Foundation.
