Last week, Representative Adam Smith (D-Wash.) welcomed two new staffers to his Washington D.C. office.
Katy Andrew joins the Smith team as the new scheduler and office manager after finishing her bachelor’s degree in History at Washington State University. A native of Longview, WA, Ms. Andrew is no stranger to the office, as she interned for Smith in D.C. during the summer of 2000. She replaces Smith’s scheduler of two years, Sara Szalay, who is moving to Denver to attend graduate school.
Taking over in the office as Communications Director is Katharine Lister. After graduating from Yale University in 2000 with a degree in History of Art, Ms. Lister spent over a year with the Democratic Leadership Council and Progressive Policy Institute.
“I am pleased that both Katy and Katharine are joining our office,” Smith said. “Katy’s energy and commitment are outstanding, and Katharine’s experience with both New Democrat politics and policy make her a terrific spokesperson for my office.”
