As promised, word came through about District 8’s office staff yesterday. Julia Montgomery will be joining the office as policy adviser and Brittne Walker will be serving as communications and district relations manager for newly elected City Council Member Paige Ellis. In addition to being a familiar face at City Hall, Montgomery has been serving as regional planner for the Capital Area Council of Governments, focusing on transportation, housing policy, economic development and national disaster relief. Previously she worked for the city’s Transportation Department, The Texas Tribune and the Texas House of Representatives. Walker most recently worked as an AmeriCorps leader at Breakthrough Central Texas. A release about the hire notes that her previous experience includes work for the Virginia Democratic Party, Annie’s List and Battleground Texas. The two join Chief of Staff Deena Estrada, who was hired earlier this week.
