So Malone moved back to Washington, D.C., and has been working for the past month to regain his footing on Capitol Hill in an office that he said likes to foster the growth of its staff members and keep them around for large chunks of their careers.
Malone said he also appreciates that Blumenauer shares “the same sort of ideals and political stances” that he has.
