Drew Willison, Senate Sergeant-at-Arms With a City Manager's Touch

Incoming Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Drew Willison once dreamed of becoming a city manager.  

Willison spent his formative years in Emporia, Va., a tiny town near the North Carolina border with a long tradition of strong city managers, and admired the work of a family friend who held the title. With his mind set on a municipal career path, Willison studied government at William and Mary College, then earned a master’s degree in public administration from Ohio State University.
