Chaffetz Announces Selection of New Chief of Staff

May 29, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Congressman Jason Chaffetz released the following statement today after selecting former staffer Fred Ferguson as his new Chief of Staff:

“I am pleased to welcome Fred Ferguson back to the Chaffetz office to serve as our new Chief of Staff.  Fred's exemplary performance in Rep. Bishop's office over the last 2 years has made him a leader in public lands policy and helped him develop valuable relationships across Utah. After a college internship in Congressman Bishop's office, Fred began his career on Capitol Hill as one of my original staffers during my first term in office.  He started as a staff assistant, but quickly earned additional legislative responsibilities before departing in 2012 to serve as Rep. Bishop's Legislative Director.  Fred will have big shoes to fill as he replaces Justin Harding, but I have every confidence in his ability to magnify this new responsibility and be an integral part of the Chaffetz team.”
