NY-26: Congressman-elect Chris Lee Gives Transition Update

by on December 4, 2008

Chris Lee has given an update on his transition to Capitol Hill, including some appointments:

In one more bit of news, I announced the appointments of both my Chief of Staff and District Director. Brian Schubert will serve as Chief of Staff in my Washington office and my Campaign Manager, Nick Langworthy, will serve as my District Director. I am putting together a strong team whose number one priority will be to provide exemplary constituent services and help me push a strong agenda for Western New York in Congress.

Congrats to Brian and Nick!

With just over a month before being sworn in, Lee is keeping busy: 

This has been an exciting month and although I have not been sworn in yet, I have wasted no time in continuing to travel the district and hear your ideas so I can bring them to Washington. I was pleased to see JP Morgan Chase announce that they will keep open the former-Washington Mutual facility in Albion. This preserves more than 800 jobs for Western New Yorkers. Last week, I had the chance to tour the call center and visit with the workers there. I told them I would do everything I could as their representative in Washington to preserve and create good-paying jobs in our area. In addition, earlier this month I attended a news conference at the Peace Bridge to unveil new technology designed to protect our border.

Lee will be sworn in on January 6, 2009.
