Rep. Kat Cammack returned to Capitol Hill this week as a member of Congress after working as a staffer for predecessor Rep. Ted Yoho. That means the Gainesville Republican will now oversee a team of her own, including quite a few veterans from the office.
The freshman announced hires in her Congressional and district offices, as well as announcing a political team she will keep in place.
“We’re excited to pursue an aggressive and meaningful legislative agenda during my first term in office and I know this team will be instrumental to our success,” Cammack said.
Larry Calhoun, Yoho’s chief of staff, will stay on in the role under Cammack. The University of Florida graduate has worked for more than a dozen years on Capitol Hill.
Jessica Norfleet, who served as a district director for Yoho, will now serve as Cammack’s deputy chief of staff. Outside her legislative staffing work, Norfleet holds a license as a Florida contractor and has long run a business in the state, giving her expertise in small business needs. She’s also an advocate for agriculture.
Joshua Woodward will stay on as legislative director, a post he held for Yoho in addition to advising on agriculture
