Longtime Rhode Island Congressman Jim Langevin has a new chief of staff. Kristin Nicholson is leaving Democrat Langevin’s office to take a job at Georgetown University.
Nicholson, who has been with Langevin since his first election to the House in 2000, will become director of the Government Affairs Institute at Georgetown. Taking over for Nicholson as chief of staff is Todd Adams, currently Langevin’s legislative director.
Adams has worked in Congress since 2004. He has spent the past nine years working for Langevin, first as a legislative assistant handling domestic social and fiscal policy and the past four and a half years as legislative director.
``I want to thank Kristin on this exciting move, and thank her for her incredible service to me and especially to the people of the second congressional district,’’ said Langevin. ``I have been so fortunate to have her by my side all these years and my entire team is better off having known and worked with someone as intelligent, supportive and compassionate as Kristin Nicholson.’’
