Rep. Peters Announces Changes to San Diego, Washington Staffs
December 20, 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52), announced changes to his congressional staffs in San Diego and Washington, D.C. that will bring three more San Diegans onto his team for 2017.
Robert Phillpott is departing as the District Scheduler this week and will be replaced by Hannah Stern, a Coronado native and University of California, San Diego graduate with an M.S. in Psychology from Claremont Graduate University. In addition to taking over scheduling and office management, Stern will also help cover biotech issues for Rep. Peters in San Diego.
Jennifer Sosa began in early December as a Field Representative in the San Diego office. Also a UCSD graduate, Sosa’s portfolio will include women’s health, education, and government reform, and she will handle constituent casework for immigration and the Department of Education, among other responsibilities.
In January, Erin Magee will start in the Washington, D.C. office as the Legislative Correspondent. Magee was born and raised in San Diego, graduated from Gonzaga University, and previously served as an intern in Rep. Peters’ San Diego office.
Rep. Peters released the following statement on the changes to his staff:
“I consider it part of my service to support young leaders and help them develop into roles – whether it be on my staff or elsewhere – where they can make positive change for San Diego and the country.
“Robert has grown tremendously during his time as an intern and a staff member. I am grateful for the work he has done in the community and wish him the best as he pursues a degree at UC Berkeley.
“Hannah, Jennifer, and Erin are bright, emerging leaders who have all worked for me in some capacity before and proven their commitment to public service and San Diego. They bring a range of experience and expertise to the team, and will uphold the same high standard for constituent service that San Diegans have come to expect from my office.”
