Visclosky Chief of Staff Quits

June 3, 2009

U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-1st, has a new chief of staff.

Visclosky’s office confirmed today that long-time chief of staff Chuck Brimmer has retired.

Spokesman Jacob Ritvo declined to say, however, when Brimmer tendered his resignation or how long he worked in that capacity for Visclosky. “Out of respect for the process, I have no further comment,” he told the Chesterton Tribune.

Mark Lopez, who had served as district director in Visclosky’s Merrillville office, has been named the new chief of staff, Ritvo said.
