New hires for District 1

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 by Jo Clifton

District 1’s new Council member, Natasha Harper-Madison, has already completed one of her most important early tasks – the hiring of her staff. Caleb Pritchard will be handling communications for her office as well as land use and transportation policy. He is an alumnus of the Austin Monitor and other publications and worked as a producer at KEYE-TV. Executive aide Daniel Segura-Kelly previously worked at a local software company and is vice president of Stonewall Democrats of Austin. Constituent liaison Elizabeth McDonald served in a similar role at the Austin Revitalization Authority. Lauren Hartnett, who was Harper-Madison’s campaign manager, has a background in marketing and design and will serve as a senior aide. Neal Whetstone, also a policy aide, worked as Harper-Madison’s field director and was the 2018 winner of the Austin Black Democrats Emerging Leader Award.
