Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., has named Elizabeth “Liz” Leoty Craddock (L ’05) new staff director of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, which oversees a broad array of energy and environmental issues.

Craddock will lead the team recently announced by Landrieu, who became energy committee chair in February.

A native of Delhi, La., Craddock joined Landrieu’s office in 2006 and most recently was legislative director and counsel, developing legislation and providing vote recommendations. Craddock’s background is in energy, environment, agriculture and trade issues. Nola.com called her “Landrieu’s key staffer in the development of the 2012 Restore Act, which designates 80 percent of Clean Water Act fines from the BP oil spill to the five Gulf Coast states.”

Landrieu said she is “confident this leadership team has the deep knowledge and experience necessary to continue developing policies that promote domestic energy production and our secure energy independence responsibly and safely.”

In a news release on the committee website, she said Craddock has been “an effective leader in my office for eight years for Louisiana and our country, and I have no doubt that she will continue to be effective in her new role leading this experienced team.”

Craddock said that “serving in this role on this important committee under Sen. Landrieu’s direction is a tremendous honor, and I am humbled by the trust she has placed in me. … I look forward to getting to work right away with the great team we have in place to move this committee forward for Louisiana and our country.”

Landrieu replaced Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., who moved over to chair the Finance Committee when its chairman, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., was confirmed as U.S. ambassador to China.
