Congressman Chris Gibson (R-Kinderhook), who represents the NY-19 District, announced changes to his Congressional staff in a press release Mon., March 3. Current chief-of-staff Steve Stallmer is now running for the 113th Assembly district seat vacated by Republican Tony Jordan, who has become Washington County District Attorney. With Stallmer gone, the Columbia County-based Republican moves Stephanie Valle to Chief of Staff, from Deputy Chief of Staff and Communications Director. Valle, from Clifton Park, will continue to retain sole on-the-record spokeswoman duties. Brad Gentile becomes Deputy Chief of Staff, and retains his current duties as Legislative Director. Gentile, from Chappaqua, also previously worked for Speaker of the House John Boehner. Matt Sheehey, from Kinderhook, becomes Press Secretary, handling office communications and press efforts. Sheehey was a former reporter for The Independent in Columbia County, a Peace Corps volunteer in Panama, and has served on the Congressman’s staff since 2011. Ann Mueller has been promoted to Deputy District Director, managing the Congressman’s District Schedule. Mueller, who lives in Kinderhook, has served on the Congressman’s staff since 2011 and previously managed all of his district constituent casework assistance across the district.

Gibson's statement:
“Both in Washington and across the 19th District, I have assembled a staff that can help serve the constituents I am privileged to represent. Stephanie, Brad, Matt and Ann have all been members of my staff since I was first elected to Congress, and their dedication, insight, and work ethic have been a model for the rest of our staff. I am confident they will all excel in these new roles,” said Congressman Gibson. “Additionally, I want to thank Steve Stallmer for his outstanding tenure as my Chief of Staff for over three years. Steve led our office with distinction and his personal integrity and commitment to Upstate New York will serve him well in his future endeavors.”
