February 1, 2022 – LANSING, Mich. – The Conservative Energy Network (CEN), a coalition of 21 state-based conservative clean energy organizations, today announced the hire of Special Projects Manager Morgan Stanchak. This new position reflects the continued expansion of CEN’s national team and will increase the organization’s capacity to impact energy policy across America.

Formerly, Morgan was a communications associate for First Tuesday Strategies, a South Carolina-based public affairs firm headed by veteran GOP strategist Luke Byars and former South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Matt Moore. Prior to joining First Tuesday Strategies, Morgan worked in the office of United States Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC). She also worked on his successful 2020 re-election campaign. Morgan is a graduate of the University of South Carolina.

“Morgan’s experience in both political and public affairs campaigns makes her a natural fit for this new role,” said Mark Pischea, president and CEO of CEN. “We are excited to expand CEN’s national and state-based efforts to forge a clean energy future by building on our current educational campaigns and pursuing new opportunities. Morgan’s work will help us advance free-market clean energy policies that promote competition and job creation.”

Now in its fifth year, CEN has significantly changed the conversation around clean energy policy among conservatives by educating local, state, and federal policymakers as well as conservative grasstops and grassroots leaders. CEN applies a commonsense, market-based approach to issues like clean technology innovation and infrastructure reform. Morgan will focus on deepening CEN’s state and national policy education programming by overseeing new initiatives and coalition-building across the organization.
