Bishop Richard J. Malone, 14th bishop of Buffalo, has named Kevin A. Keenan, former communications director for the Diocese of Buffalo, diocesan representative to the New York State Public Policy Committee.
"There has been a formal decision by the New York State Board of Bishops to restructure the Public Policy Committee," said Bishop Malone. "It has been determined that each diocese will have only one representative. This is a change from the past where a diocese may have held two or more seats. Therefore, I have appointed Kevin Keenan as the sole representative to the Public Policy Committee for the Diocese of Buffalo, effective immediately."
Keenan is a member of the Bishop's Council of the Laity, serves on the board of directors for Catholic Health and St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute, and is a consultant to the diocesan Catholic School Advisory Council. He is a founding partner of Keenan Communications Group which serves as the communications counsel for the Diocese of Buffalo and for Catholic Cemeteries.
