Wester­man’s aide Lovett gets new job

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - WASHINGTON - Plan­ning to visit the na­tion’s cap­i­tal? Know some­thing hap­pen­ing in Washington, D.C.? Please con­tact Frank Lockwood at (202) 662-7690 or flock­wood@arkansason­line.com. Want the lat­est from the Washington bureau? It’s avail­able on Twit­ter, @Lock­woodFrank.

Fri­day was the last day on the job for Kasey Lovett, a staff and press as­sis­tant to U.S. Rep. Bruce Wester­man. She’s mov­ing to the of­fice of U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleis­chmann, where she’ll work as the Ten­nessee Repub­li­can’s press sec­re­tary.

Orig­i­nally from the Dal­las area, the Univer­sity of Arkansas grad­u­ate moved to Washington last year af­ter grad­u­at­ing with a de­gree in com­mu­ni­ca­tions and pol­i­tics. She worked for Arkansas’ 4th Dis­trict con­gress­man the past eight months.

Lovett, who de­vel­oped an in­ter­est in pol­i­tics while in high school, ini­tially thought she might be­come a lawyer but re­al­ized, af­ter in­tern­ing in an at­tor­ney’s of­fice, that it wasn’t the path for her.

So she went to Capi­tol Hill in­stead.

“Kasey’s been an ab­so­lute joy. She brought a ton of en­ergy to the of­fice and did a re­ally great job with our con­stituent ser­vices and help­ing with com­mu­ni­ca­tions, and she will be sorely missed,” said Wester­man spokesman Ryan Say­lor.
