WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) announced today that Marty Reiser, his Policy Director, will be leaving Congress after several years of service. Francis Brooke, a former Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of the National Economic Council under Larry Kudlow, will be assuming the role of Policy Director.

 

“With a servant’s heart and attention to detail, Marty has been a critical asset and a steady hand for the past seven years with Team Scalise. Marty has been an integral player in many key legislative achievements like the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and USMCA, and is a close friend to staffers and representatives alike. Thank you, Marty. You will be deeply missed on Capitol Hill,” said House Republican Whip Steve Scalise. “From the House to the Senate to the White House, Francis has been a huge asset to every team he has joined. Our policy team is in capable hands with Francis leading the operation as Policy Director. When Republicans retake the majority in 2022, I’m excited to see what we can accomplish together for the American people.”
