East Bay Congressman-elect Eric Swalwell, arriving in Washington today for a House freshman orientation, tweeted his announcement of a significant staff hire:
To deliver responsive constituent services, I’ve hired Shannon Fuller as #CA15 District Director. Her organization & vision is what we need.
New #CA15 District Director Shannon Fuller is a Bay Area native, a mom, has worked for @EllenOTauscher & @JerryBrownGov, and loves cooking.
Fuller, 39, of Orinda, has a LinkedIn profile that says she was a finance director and fundraiser for Taucher’s campaign from 1998 to 2000, and a scheduler in Rep. Ellen Tauscher’s office from 2001 through 2004; Swalwell interned in Tauscher’s office in 2001.
The profile also says Fuller was an executive assistant to Jerry Brown’s campaign manager for five months in 2010, and this year served as finance director of Swalwell’s campaign. She holds a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of San Diego.
