Rep. James P. McGovern, CHC Board Chair, released a statement yesterday in tribute to the anti-hunger career of former CHC Executive Director Ed Cooney. “Ed fights hard for some of the most vulnerable populations,” he said, “and I am so proud to call him my partner, my colleague, and my friend.”
|“I know many would agree that Ed has been an incredible teacher. We have all learned a lot from Ed. He is a leading expert on policies related to ending hunger. He knows every line of every bill. Every speech at every conference. Throughout his tireless service, Ed has been an incredible resource for all of us.”|
Ed Cooney began working at CHC in 2001 and retired in September of this year.
