Toon came to Washington in 1981 as a presidential management intern from Medora, Ind. Since then, he has done tours as chief of staff for Sens. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) and former Sen. Bill Bradley (D-N.J.). He had the same job for former Rep. Tim Roemer (D-Ind.). That relationship has had permanent reverberations; Toon met his wife on one of Roemer's campaigns, and the congressman was best man in the wedding.
He said he is looking forward to taking a break from campaigns and working with a company that has what he called an impeccable reputation in the engineering community.
