Changing of the Guard
So Rob Uhe is leaving his post as Counsel to the Speaker and House Parliamentarian in order to move to the next phase of his career with a position at Mayer Brown. Rob is an all-around quality guy who was great at his job. So good in fact, that you couldn't get mad at him even as he would coolly look you in the eyes and tell you that your bill wasn't moving-ever. He was a great asset to the caucus and I'm sure will be successful in his new venture.
I was heartened to hear that he is being replaced by David Ellis, a former staffer, present attorney, prolific author and also a great guy. To learn a little bit more about David, go to this link and scroll down about half way.
I have to hand it to the Speaker, between Mike Kasper, Uhe and now Ellis, he has consistently put quality talent at his side when it comes to operating the House. Welcome back Dave.
