Two experienced Capitol Hill insiders have joined the staff of Growth Energy.
Anne Steckel will be Director of Government Affairs for the ethanol organization and Ted Monoson has been named Director of Legislative Affairs. Steckel is a former aide to Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) and most recently served as the Director of Congressional Relations for the American Farm Bureau Federation. Monoson is a former aide to House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH).
According to a Growth Energy release, Monoson and Steckel will work to advance the organization’s policy priorities in the nation’s capitol, “which include increasing the blend of ethanol in our fuel supply to up to 15 percent and ensuring America’s farmers and ethanol producers can continue to provide alternative fuels to power our nation.”
