(DENVER) - Jonathan M. Anderson has been named Chief Counsel to Gov. Bill Owens. Anderson was working as an attorney with Hale Friesen, LLP. Prior to that he had served as the Deputy Chief Counsel to Governor Owens. He replaces Gwen Benevento who left this month to remain at home with a newborn daughter.
"I'm very pleased that Jon has agreed to serve as Chief Counsel," said Governor Owens. "With his past service in the governor's office, Jon already is familiar with many of the people and much of the work. More importantly, he is well qualified for the position."
Anderson received a bachelor's degree in political from Colorado College and his juris doctorate from the University of Colorado School of Law. He previously served as a law clerk in the United States Attorney's Office and was an associate attorney with McElroy, Deutsch & Mulvaney.
His community service activities include serving on the board of directors for Colorado Ronald McDonald House, a "home away from home" for out-of-town families with children in Denver area hospitals. Anderson also serves on the board of Providers' Resources Clearinghouse, a non-profit that collects and redistributes goods to other area non-profits. He is a fifth generation Coloradan.
