WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today announced that Tom Bush, a Lawrence, Kan. native, has been promoted to serve as Legislative Director in his office. Bush will direct all policymaking and will continue to be based in Sen. Moran’s Washington, D.C., office.
“There is no one better suited for the task of Legislative Director in my office than Tom,” said Sen. Moran. “Since he first joined my office as an intern a decade ago, Tom has consistently shown an interest in and understanding of the real issues that Kansans face every day. His solution-oriented attitude will continue to serve Kansans well, and I look forward to all that we will accomplish with Tom at the helm of our legislative operation.”
Bush began his career on Capitol Hill in 2009 as an intern for then-Congressman Moran, and has served Kansans in Sen. Moran’s office since. Throughout his tenure, he has worked on a variety of issues for Sen. Moran and has maintained the commerce, transportation, infrastructure, tax, labor, small business and economic development portfolios. Most recently, Bush served as Sen. Moran’s Senior Legislative Assistant, where he focused much of his attention on commerce, transportation and aviation-related issues.
Bush, a Lawrence native, graduated from Lawrence High School in 2004. He obtained a B.S. in Business Administration from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va. in 2008 and is a candidate for a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) at Georgetown University.
