WASHINGTON – Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) today announced two staff changes in his DC legislative office. Lee Slater has been promoted to Chief of Staff to succeed Shelley Rubino who is departing at the end of the month. Additionally, David Sitcovsky, currently a Legislative Assistant, has been promoted to take over Slater’s current role as Legislative Director. John Rossi will continue to serve as Chief of Staff for District Operations.
“Lee has been a great asset to both me and the 1st District since joining my staff,” said Larson. “As my Legislative Director he has helped manage my legislative agenda with a deep understanding of the legislative process and good judgment and leadership. I know that we can count on him to keep fighting for the 1st District, Connecticut, and the nation in his new role as Chief of Staff of my legislative office.”
“Similarly, David has shown both a tremendous work ethic and in-depth knowledge of the issues we face every day,” Larson added. “Skills I know will serve him well as he continues his work for our great state as my Legislative Director.”
“I want to thank Chairman Larson for this opportunity and the trust he has bestowed in me,” said Lee Slater. “Since joining the Chairman's staff, I have been honored to work with a highly professional and supportive team. Together we have served the first district of Connecticut and the nation to our utmost ability and I am now looking forward to continuing this work in my new capacity as Chief of Staff.”
"It has truly been an honor to work for Congressman Larson and the people of the First Congressional District over the past four years and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to continue serving the District in this new role," Sitcovsky added.
