NEW: Warren Announces Initial Senate Staff Hires

Monday, December 03, 2012

 

As she prepares to take office in January, Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren today announced her top Senate staff: Chief of Staff Mindy Myers, Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Geldon, and State Director Roger Lau.

“Mindy, Dan, and Roger bring energy, dedication, and years of experience to their roles, and they will give exceptional service to the people of Massachusetts," said Senator-elect Warren.

Chief of Staff Myers led Warren’s successful and historic campaign for the US Senate. As campaign manager, she was responsible for directing the strategy and every aspect of the over $40 million campaign. In 2010, Myers managed the winning campaign of Sen. Richard Blumenthal in Connecticut. Prior to joining the Warren campaign, Myers served as Chief of Staff to US Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island. She also served as Campaign Manager for Whitehouse’s successful Senate campaign in 2006. Myers served in 2008 as New Hampshire State Director for the Obama campaign. Myers also worked in the Legislative Affairs Office of President Bill Clinton, as Senior Advisor and Political Director for former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, and as Deputy Director for Constituency Outreach for Al Gore's presidential campaign in 2000.

A long-time advisor to Warren, Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Geldon served as a senior advisor on the Elizabeth Warren for MA campaign. In that role, he helped coordinate and advise on the day to day operations and strategy of the campaign. Previously, Dan served as an advisor to Warren during her time at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau from 2010-2011, as she advocated for Congress to pass strong financial reform legislation from 2009-2010, and as she chaired the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program from 2008-2009. Dan also managed a competitive, successful congressional campaign in 2008 and directed the Democratic National Committee's youth outreach program from 2004-2005. He is a graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Law School.

State Director Roger Lau brings extensive experience across Massachusetts to Warren. He served as Political Director for Warren’s campaign for US Senate. Prior to joining the campaign, he held a number of positions on the staff of Senator John Kerry dating back to 1999 including Press Secretary and Deputy State Director. In addition he has served as District Director for Congressman Marty Meehan and later for Congressman Richie Neal, and was also Chief of Protocol at the US Department of Commerce under Secretary Gary Locke. He also helped manage campaigns for Senator Kerry, Congressman Neal, Congressman Michael Capuano, and Congresswoman Niki Tsongas. He also worked in several states during the 2008 presidential primary and served as State Director in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
