Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi today named Nadeam Elshami as her new chief of staff. Her former chief of staff, John Lawrence, has stepped down after eight years in the position.

“On behalf of my colleagues, I want to thank John Lawrence for his 38 years of service to the House of Representatives,” said Pelosi. “Few staff members have ever had the impact that John has had on so many laws that have been enacted in his years in my office as speaker and as democratic leader, and with Chairman George Miller. I wish John and Deborah well and will always value their friendship.”

Elshami currently serves as communications director for Pelosi. In the past he has served as a deputy communications director for Senator Dick Durbin and deputy chief of staff and communications for congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. He was also once the deputy press secretary for Senator Barbara Boxer, after beginning his career in congress in the Senate mailroom.

“For the past six years, Nadeam has been a key communications strategist, spokesperson and senior advisor,” said Leader Pelosi. “I know my colleagues in the House Democratic Caucus will benefit from his leadership as he transitions to Chief of Staff.”

Drew Hammill, currently deputy communications director and press secretary for Pelosi, will be taking over Elshami’s role as communications director. In addition, Pelosi announced that Diane Dewhirst, a senior advisor to the Democratic leader, has been promoted to the role of deputy chief of staff.

      Maybe Nancy should do a little work on her own. She is looking old, an needs a little exercise. Her smiles aren’t doing much for her any longer.

      I’ m thinking the same thing’ .It usually comes out that they’re
      Islamic ‘ ; or related to one’ , whom has a questionable past ‘.

  • J. Frost

    Why does it seem all of the people stepping into political power have islamic sounding names?

      I thought the constitution of United States did not discriminate on the basis of religion,colour or ethnic background as conceived by its founding fathers.It is a land of oppurtunity and a land of immigrants.(The native Americans were long time ago pushed to walk on the Trail of the tears).So why should one feel surprised if a person with a different looking name be promoted to a position?Is the concept of unity based on diversity no more valid?
