New Blood in New York Office
Earlier this month, Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) welcomed two new staffers to his Capitol Hill office.
Raymon Pal will handle the Congressman’s front office as Crowley’s new staff assistant. The 23-year-old Douglaston, N.Y., native is a former technical chartist and research analyst in the private sector. He also worked as an equity trader at Lynx Capital Partners and Tradescape Securities. Pal is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and its Wharton Business School.
Coming aboard as legislative correspondent is Eli Kogan, 23. Hailing from Rockville, Md., Kogan graduated in December from the University of Maryland with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
Energetic Movement. Angela Harper, a former legislative assistant for Rep. Jennifer Dunn (R-Wash.), has made the switch to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. The former House staffer will now handle committee press duties as deputy communications director.
Harper, who handled energy and science issues for Dunn, is a Washington native and a 2001 graduate of Vanderbilt University.
On the Rise in the Sunshine State. Twenty-something staffers are on the move in Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite’s (R-Fla.) office. The Congresswoman recently announced a pair of hires and a pair of promotions in her Longworth office.
Bob Honold, who has been with the freshman Congresswoman since her inauguration, moves up from legislative assistant to communications director. The former White House intern is a 2002 graduate of Holy Cross College, where he earned degrees in political science and economics. Honold, 24, is a native of Syracuse, N.Y.
Replacing Honold is former Brown-Waite intern Chris Brock. Brock returns to the office after a stint as legislative correspondent and staff assistant for Rep. John Sullivan (R-Okla.). He will now be responsible for agriculture, Homeland Security, immigration and Social Security issues. Brock, 25, is a graduate of Tulane University and calls Brusly, La., his home.
Moving up from staff assistant to scheduler/office manager is Jennifer Fay. The 23-year-old Louisville, Ky., native graduated from the University of Kentucky last year with a degree in business administration.
Whitney Chamberlain, 24, has been brought aboard to replace Fay as staff assistant. The former Brown-Waite intern holds master’s and bachelor’s degrees from the University of Florida and hails from New Port Richey, Fla.
