Personnel update: Barry Moore names Chief of Staff, District Director


Congressman-elect Barry Moore has announced he has hired Shana Kluck Teehan as his Chief of Staff and William “Bill” Harris as District Director.  

Teehan currently lives with her husband and children in Northern Virginia but lived in Alabama for 16 years. She was the State Director for the Ron Paul for President campaign, worked as Communications Director for the Alabama Republican Party during the 2012 election cycle, and served on the ALGOP Executive Committee from 2008 until she moved to Virginia in 2012 to be Press Secretary to Congressman Kevin Brady. She has held several positions in Washington, including Communications Director for Senator Luther Strange

Harris will be Moore’s District Director. He lives in Pine Level and is a deacon of East Memorial Baptist Church in Prattville. Harris has been with the Alabama Forestry Association since 2014 and is a veteran with 32 years of service. He is a member of the ALGOP Executive Committee, bringing extensive military and federal, state, and local political experience to Moore’s Alabama-based team.

Moore stated, “I’m blessed to be able to add Shana Teehan and Bill Harris to my team.  Shana’s political experience in Alabama and congressional experience in Washington will let me hit the ground running as a new Congressman, so there won’t be a single day when District 2 isn’t fully represented. Bill knows Alabama politics and industry like few others, and he’ll help make sure District 2’s interests are looked out for. The fact he’s a veteran who understands our military and veterans’ needs will be a great asset to the people I represent. I’m looking forward to working with Shana and Bill to represent the values and interests of District 2 from Day 1.”

Moore will be sworn in as a member of the 117th Congress on January 3rd.
