* Director of Legislative Affairs
Department of Homeland Security, Science & technology Directorate
“From my Senate confirmation hearings, through two years of re-inventing the Dept of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate (which was described by the Congress in 2006 as a "rudderless ship with no one at the helm" and in danger of the Congress rescinding $200M in FY 07), Chuck Brooks as Director of Legislative Affairs at DHS was INVALUABLE to me, the DHS S&T Directorate, DHS, the Nation AND Congress in making the "reformation" of DHS S&T a complete success. His Hill/DC acumen, insight, reliability, ability to develop highly effective congressional interaction/communications is WITHOUT PEER in my nearly 16 years dealing with senior executive branch officials, industry, academia and the Congress. He has my strongest recommendation for executive positions of high responsibility in government relations/ business development. Hon. Jay M Cohen (Rear Admiral, US Navy, ret.)” March 30, 2009
