As a senior chief of staff for one of the Republican party’s most senior members, Mr. Neville also brings in-depth knowledge about a wide-range of issues pending in Congress, including telecommunications, agriculture and human rights. Mr. Neville has helped lead meetings of the Values Action Team, a group created by Republican House Leadership to maintain cooperation with conservative congressmen and activist groups.
