Meet CPR’s New Chesapeake Bay Policy Analyst

April 20, 2015

The Center for Progressive Reform is excited to welcome its new policy analyst, Evan Isaacson who will focus on the Chesapeake Bay.  Isaacson succeeds Anne Havemann, and will continue her sterling work on the intersection of state and federal environmental regulations and the Bay.

Mr. Isaacson joins CPR after eight years on staff at the Maryland General Assembly, where he served as an analyst in the Natural Resources, Environment, and Transportation workgroup, as well as counsel to the Joint Committee on Administrative, Executive, and Legislative Review.  According to CPR Executive Director Matt Shudtz, “Evan has been involved in practically every important legislative effort affecting the Bay in Maryland for the past 7 years. We are looking forward to tapping into his expertise to continue Anne Havemann’s great work in watchdogging federal and state agencies tasked with protecting the Bay.”

Before his work at the state legislature, he interned at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland Office of the Attorney General within the Maryland Department of the Environment.

Isaacson looks forward to working with the Chesapeake Bay’s restoration and advocacy community. “The strides that the community has made in pushing for and enforcing stronger protections for the Bay is a model for other groups across the country,” he says. “I’m excited to join CPR Member Scholar Rena Steinzor in working with the Bay’s restoration and enforcement advocacy network.”

Isaacson is a graduate of the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, and holds a B.A. in International Relations and Geography from Syracuse University. He lives with his wife and dog at the mouth of the Severn River near Annapolis.
