Lisa Boothe, communications director for Rep. Sandy Adams, returned to working on Capitol Hill after a year at the National Republican Congressional Committee.
In November, she knew it was the perfect opportunity to get back to the Hill. Boothe interviewed with several Members before being hired by Adams, whose race she had followed closely. “I wanted to work for her because she stands firm in what she believes,” Boothe said.
Since starting Jan 3., Boothe has been in charge of all messaging and communications for the new office. But even though she has only been at the job for three weeks, it’s already familiar to her.
“I’m literally working on the same floor in Cannon as I was working on when I was with Frank Wolf,” she said. “I’m walking in the same door. I’m saying ‘Hi’ to the same Capitol Police officers I used to talk to. It’s almost like coming home.”
