Personnel note: Shelby staffer Emily Taylor hops chambers, joins Roby’s press shop


After more than two years in Sen. Richard Shelby‘s office, staffer Emily Taylor has hopped chambers to work for Alabama 2nd District U.S. Rep. Martha Roby.

Roby made the announcement Monday that Taylor now serves in the position of press secretary in her Washington D.C. office.

“In Congress I have made a point to surround myself with smart, driven staff members who can help me better serve the people of Alabama’s Second District,” Roby said. “Emily brings valuable experience and a strong commitment to the state of Alabama that make her a great addition to our team.”

A Montgomery native, Taylor, 25, worked as deputy press secretary for Shelby since March 2015. Prior to that she served as his staff assistant.

She expressed gratitude and excitement for the new opportunity.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to work for Rep. Roby and to support her efforts in fighting for the conservative cause in Washington,” Taylor said. “While it was difficult to leave Sen. Shelby’s office, I am excited to continue to serve the people of Alabama and my hometown in this new capacity.”

As press secretary, Taylor will work alongside Communications Director Todd Stacy to advance Roby’s legislative initiatives and advocacy efforts publicly. Taylor will serve as the primary contact for local, state, and national media organizations.

  4. It makes me think of an old picture of my Grandpa in his uniform: it was a picture taken just after he faked his age and joined the Canadian Airforce at the tender age of 16. His skin is soft with youth and his cheeks are re-touched by the photographer in the palest shade of blush. His eyes are hauntingly innocent. To this day, he will not speak of the time spent in the skies while our country. If you ask him what he thinks of the young men who serve today, he will only say, “Somebody has to.”
