Rep. Panetta hires University of Iowa lobbyist

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Feb. 15, 2018

Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.) has hired his third legislative director since taking office last year.

Matthew Manning, who starts with Panetta's office this month, comes from the University of Iowa, where he lobbied on issues including the National Defense Authorization Act, self-driving cars and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration flood-forecasting programs.

Manning has also worked as an associate at defense-consultling firm Jacques & Associates and as a military legislative assistant to ex-Rep. John Ashford (D-Neb.). He handles Panetta's armed forces, international affairs and government operations portfolios.
