Last week, CCAO formally welcomed James Kennedy to the Association. He will work with the Policy Team as a policy analyst.
“James has jumped right into his work with the team, participating in the Policy Team’s meetings with legislators on CCAO budget priorities,” said CCAO Executive Director Cheryl Subler. “We are glad to have him with the Association and are excited for our members to meet him at New Member Training at the end of this month and throughout the year.”
James has previously served as the Legislative Coordinator to the Martin County Board of County Commissioners in his home town Stuart, Florida. Prior to that role, he was a Legislative Aide in the Ohio House of Representatives for Representative Derek Merrin and a Legislative Assistant to the Tennessee Legislation Service in Nashville Tennessee during the 2018 Tennessee General Assembly.
Additionally, he interned at the Buckeye Institute as a Legal Research Analyst and interned at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) as a Tax and Fiscal Policy Intern. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the Florida Atlantic University.
