Holding the Government Accountable

POGO's Director of Public Policy Moves to Head New Organization

It’s a bittersweet moment, but we couldn’t be prouder: Angela Canterbury, Director of Public Policy at the Project On Government Oversight since 2010, is moving on to a new role as Executive Director for Council for a Livable World, its Candidate Fund, and its sister think tank, the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. Watch the video introducing Angela to the organizations’ supporters here.

During her time at POGO, Angela testified before Congress many times and advocated tirelessly to advance public policies to combat corruption and to promote openness and accountability in the federal government.

A message from Angela:

It is an honor to lead these esteemed and dynamic organizations that have been working for more than a half a century to reduce the grave threat of nuclear and other deadly weapons and to increase national security through sensible policies. Like POGO, these groups engage in hard-hitting, fact-based advocacy. But we also help to elect members of Congress who share the goal of making us truly secure. I plan to continue those traditions and hope to bring new energy and innovation to the current debates about national security and foreign policy.

It’s also been a privilege serving as the director of public policy at POGO over the past four years. I am proud of what we accomplished together.

Thankfully, this is not the end of Angela’s involvement with POGO. She said she looks forward to continuing to work together as partners. Congratulations, Angela, from everyone at POGO!
