STAFF MOVES: Look Who’s Movin’ On Up On Capitol Hill This Week

Recent Staff Moves, As Reported By Legistorm:

Congressional staffers are scarce on Capitol Hill this week, thanks to most offices moving to telework status, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t still getting promotions.

House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) adds legal muscle to his staff with the addition of Ashleigh Wilson as Legislative Director/Counsel. Ashlee comes to the Hill from Bowman and Brooke LLP. She earned her law degree in 2011 from the Wake Forest University School of Law. Her BA from Wofford College came in 2008 in Philosophy. So if you want to talk about the ontological argument for the existence of God …

T.C. Williams has been doing legislative liaison for the U.S. Army for many years, and now he is moving over to the Airland Subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee, working for Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) as a Professional Staff Member. He has an MS in national security studies from the National Defense University in 2008, an MS in management from Troy University in 1998 and a BS in civil engineering from The Citadel in 1985.

Tricia Russell’s first job on Capitol Hill was interning for Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) Now she is moving up to Chief of Staff for Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD). In between those notable jobs, Russell has been in the same position, among others, for Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) and Rep. Steve Israel (D-NJ). Patricia’s BA is from Syracuse University and she completed a Driving Government Performance curriculum in 2016 at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
