ENERGY UNDER SECRETARY TUCK LEAVES DEPARTMENT; JOINS SEN. HOWARD BAKER'S WASHINGTON LAW FIRM

 ENERGY UNDER SECRETARY TUCK LEAVES DEPARTMENT;
 JOINS SEN. HOWARD BAKER'S WASHINGTON LAW FIRM
 WASHINGTON, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Under Secretary John C. Tuck said today he is leaving the Department of Energy (DOE) after nearly three years as its third-highest ranking official to join the Washington law firm of former White House Chief of Staff Sen. Howard H. Baker Jr., whom Tuck worked for in several capacities at the White House and the U.S. Senate.
 Tuck said he will take a position as a public policy law specialist in the Washington office of Baker, Worthington, Crossley, Stansberry & Woolf.
 "The past three years have been challenging ones at DOE. The department has been in a period of great transition, and continues to undergo major changes in recognition of a changing world and the president's historic arms reduction initiatives," said Tuck.
 He added, "Three years ago, Admiral Watkins and his leadership team identified the need to instill a new culture, a discipline, and a commitment to excellence in engineering, safety and health, and management of our facilities. The department has met many of the goals set forth by Admiral Watkins and by DOE's oversight groups. The department now stands ready to safely and expeditiously transition a weapons complex which just three years ago envisioned possible expansion, to one which is smaller, more efficient, less costly to operate, and moves in sync with world events and conditions."
 Tuck was nominated by President Bush to be Under Secretary of Energy on April 4, 1989, and was confirmed by the Senate and sworn into office on April 12, 1989.
 Prior to DOE, Tuck served in several capacities at the White House from 1986 to 1989, most recently as assistant to the president and director of the office of the chief of staff. In earlier positions, Tuck served as deputy assistant to the president and executive assistant to Chief of Staff Baker; deputy assistant to the president for legislative affairs; and special assistant to the president for legislative affairs.
 From 1981 to 1986, Tuck served as assistant secretary for the majority in Senate where he assisted Majority Leaders Baker and Robert J. Dole with the day-to-day Senate floor operation. He was manager of the Minority Floor Information Services, U.S. House of Representatives from 1977 to 1981; and served as assistant manager from 1975 to 1976. He has also assisted the Republican leadership in the Office of Records and Registration for the clerk of the House from 1974 to 1975.
 Tuck served on active duty in the U.S. Navy from 1968 to 1973, and was stationed on the USS Bausell from 1968 to 1971. He was assigned to the Bureau of Navy Personnel from 1971 to 1973, and is currently a captain in the Naval Reserve.
 A native of Dayton, Ohio, Tuck received his B.S. in international economics from Georgetown University, School of Foreign Service, in 1967.
 He is married to the former Jane McDonough of Garden City, N.Y., and they have three sons, John, Timothy and Christopher. They currently reside in Arlington, Va.
