FishbowlDC obtained John Dineen‘s memo announcing Ives’ promotion:
Folks – I am very pleased to announce that Benton Ives will be joining our team of legislative action editors later this month. Most recently, Benton has demonstrated his exceptional talents as a writer and reporter through his coverage of the banking and financial services beat for CQ. This is Benton’s second tour of duty here: He returned in 2007, after spending more than a year covering finance for the Dow Jones Newswire. During an earlier four-year stint at CQ, Benton worked as a committees and floor votes reporter – experiences that no doubt will come in handy as an editor for our action team – and reported for CQ Homeland Security. Please join me in congratulating Benton on his promotion.
