Congressman-elect Barry Moore, R-Alabama, announced Tuesday that he has hired Shana Kluck Teehan as his chief of staff and William “Bill” Harris as his district director.

“I’m blessed to be able to add Shana Teehan and Bill Harris to my team,” Moore said in a statement. “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,” Moore said. “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 said.

Teehan is a native of Texas. She lived in Alabama for 16 years. Her four children are all native Alabamians. She was the state director for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign. She was the communications director for the Alabama Republican Party during the 2012 election cycle under Chairman Bill Armistead.

Teehan served on the Alabama Republican Party Executive Committee from 2008 until she moved to Virginia in 2012 to be press secretary to Congressman Kevin Brady, R-Texas.

She has held several positions in Washington, most notably as the communications director for U.S. Sen. Luther Strange, R-Alabama, in 2017. She was also the senior advisor to Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady. She lives with her husband and children in Northern Virginia.

Bill Harris, of Pine Level, will be Moore’s district director. Harris is a deacon at East Memorial Baptist Church in Prattville and veteran with 32 years of service, Harris has been with the Alabama Forestry Association since 2014, most recently as director of political affairs. He is a long-time member of the Alabama Republican Party Executive Committee. Harris brings his extensive military and federal, state and local political experience to Moore’s Alabama-based team.

Moore will be sworn in as a member of the 117th Congress on Jan. 3. Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District will continue to be represented by Congresswoman Martha Roby, R-Montgomery, through the end of the 116th Congress.

Moore served two terms in the Alabama House of Representatives from 2010 to 2018.
