Granger's struggles with staff turnovers continues

Caught Our Eye Posted by Steve Shapiro on Tuesday, October 13, 2015
It must feel like Groundhog Day in the office of Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas). She just brought on a new chief of staff making him the fifth person to hold that title this year.

Bill Zito has replaced Darin Gardner, who left the office one month after replacing Steve Ruhlen. Ruhlen, in turn, also left after a several-week stint from July to August. Overall, Granger has had three chiefs of staff since July and five since the start of 2015. Matt Leffingwell had served as her chief of staff since 2012 but departed in January of this year. His position was filled by Shannon Meade who stayed until July when she was replaced by Ruhlen.

Bill Zito joins Granger after serving for two years as the deputy chief of staff for Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) since late 2013. He began his Hill career as an U.S. Army congressional fellow in 2012.

We have found LegiStorm to be the ultimate tool in communicating with congressional offices, either individually or with a group. We have been able to reach out with messages to all chiefs of staff and legislative directors, or staff dedicated to specific areas. We believe that this ability was instrumental in passing two key pieces of legislation which were imperative to our members.

The data provided by LegiStorm stands out as the best Congressional data available. The accuracy and organization of LegiStorm's data has meant that I've been able to greatly speed up progress on my research. I have no hesitation in recommending LegiStorm to all types of researchers, journalists, lobbyists and other political professionals.
