Tony Russo is new in the position of Executive Vice President - Government Affairs and Communications at the Commerce and Industry Asssociation of New Jersey. But he is not new to environmental regulations and legislation in the Garden State. Tony has been involved for more than 20 years, starting out with the NJDEP and expanding his knowledge by working for private firms and most notably with the Chemistry Council of New Jersey. After a stint learning how lobbiing works in D. C., he's returned to Trenton where he directs CIANJ's government relations office.
Tony explains for EnviroPolitics the path he's followed to his new position, what the CIANJ is all about, and what issues are paramount for his association's membership.
If you have an interest in the environment, politics, trade associations, business or lobbying, you'll enjoy this episode.
Tony is the first of what we hope will be a long line of energy and environment experts with whom we'll be speakaing in future epidodes of the EnviroPolitics Podcst. Is there someone you'd like to hear us interview? Give us your suggestion(s) in an email. Send it to us at: Editor@EnviroPolitics.
Thanks for listening.
