Mario Moretto is Deputy Director of State Communications on the State Fiscal Policy team. In his role, he works to ensure CBPP’s state policy research achieves maximum impact in state-level narrative and policymaking.
He also provides trainings, technical assistance, and other support to the State Priorities Partnership, a network of more than 40 independent, nonprofit research and policy organizations throughout the country. And he works with CBPP’s Communications team to develop and execute integrated communications strategies across federal and state issues.
Mario has deep experience in state-based policy advocacy, earned media and paid campaign communications strategies, and narrative and messaging research. While he provides communications support across CBPP’s issue areas, his work at CBPP is focused primarily on state tax and revenue.
Mario joined CBPP in 2021. Prior to that, he was communications director at the Maine Center for Economic Policy, where he led state communications campaigns on tax and budget, workers’ rights, and other critical areas of state policy. Other prior experiences include work as a journalist covering state government and as a political communications professional.
