Americans for Prosperity-Florida announces wave of promotions, new hires

Chris Stranburg, Lee Dury and Elizabeth Chatham are joining as Deputy Directors of Grassroots Operations

Americans for Prosperity-Florida is bringing on some new staff.

The conservative advocacy group announced Friday that it’s hired on three new team members: Chris Stranburg, Lee Dury and Elizabeth Chatham.

Stranburg joins AFP-FL from the Governor’s office. Dury brings a “passion for learning to bring Floridians together.” And Chatham has more than a decade of experience advocating for veterans.

All three will work as Deputy Directors of Grassroots Operations.

The three hires were coupled with three promotions.

Diego Echeverri has been moved up to Legislative Liaison, where he will spearhead AFP-FL’s under-the-dome efforts in Tallahassee.

Starla Brown, a 32-year resident of Southeast Florida and experienced AFP-FL team-member, will move from the role of Director of Grassroots Operations and into the position of Deputy State Director.

Taking over her former role is Brian Thiele, a long-time staffer of AFP-Florida.

“We’re excited to see our Americans for Prosperity team grow and expand across Florida with the hiring of experienced veterans in grassroots organizing and policy advocacy,” AFP-FL State Director Skylar Zander said.

”Alongside AFP’s current dedicated staff, our new team-members bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, and momentum to continue our great work. AFP-FL is better positioned than ever to push for reforms that will make Florida the best place to live, work, and raise a family.”
