Graduate joins conservative political advocacy group in Washington, D.C.
Tyler Koteskey ‘11 began working for Americans for Prosperity, founded by brothers David and Charles Koch.
“Americans for Prosperity works to recruit, educate and mobilize citizens nationwide to support policies advancing a free and open society of mutual benefit,” Koteskey said. “I’m joining AFP’s headquarters policy team as an analyst focused primarily on foreign policy and criminal justice reform, where I’ll help translate the organization’s broader vision into practical policy stances that advance it. I’ve enjoyed politics since my time at Harker and it’s fulfilling to go into an office every morning to advance what I believe in.”
The organization was founded in 2004 and is a libertarian/conservative political advocacy group, according to Wikipedia. “As the Koch brothers’ primary political advocacy group, it is one of the most influential American conservative organizations,” the website notes.
