Alabama’s U.S. Senator Katie Britt has appointed Sean Ross as her Deputy Chief of Staff, according to Politico. Ross, who played a pivotal role as Britt’s campaign communications director during her successful Senate bid, was subsequently named her Senate Communications Director.

Ross, a graduate of the University of Alabama, has quickly ascended in Alabama’s Republican circles, establishing himself as a consultant and advisor. His impressive career includes serving as the editor of Yellowhammer News from 2019 to 2021, where he bolstered his reputation in conservative media.

The move is being viewed as a strategic one, leveraging Ross’ expertise to further Britt’s legislative and political agenda.

Additionally, Amy Hasenberg-Elliott, who most recently served as Communications Director and Senior Communications Advisor for U.S. Senator James Risch (R-Idaho), has also joined Britt’s team. According to her LinkedIn profile, Hasenberg-Elliott describes herself as a “passionate communications and public affairs professional with a proven track record of success in strategic planning, media booking and placement, and crisis communications. I excel at translating complex policy into compelling storytelling materials.”

Britt’s decision to elevate Ross to Deputy Chief of Staff not only highlights her trust in his abilities but also reflects a strategic move to enhance her team’s efforts with experienced professionals.
