Davis taps Marin for chief of staff

House Government Reform Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-Va.) tapped David Marin, the committee's deputy staff director and communications director, to serve as the committee's staff director.

Marin was appointed following the departure of former staff director Melissa Wojciak, who left the committee to become director of federal affairs at New York-based Monster Worldwide's government affairs division, Davis said Tuesday.

'Monster's gain is the Government Reform Committee's loss,' Davis said. 'Melissa's an incredibly dedicated, experienced and talented professional who knows the ins and outs of the legislative process as well as anybody who's worked for me.'

Wojciak helped Davis and the committee in writing legislation on e-government and IT issues, particularly the E-Government Act of 2002.

Before his appointment, Marin also served as staff director for the House Select Committee on Hurricane Katrina.
