WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) today announced that Tommy Andrews, his director of members services, will be leaving the speaker’s office at the end of this week. Andrews, a veteran of two speakerships, has accepted a role in legislative affairs at the White House.
“One of the best things John Boehner did for me was leave behind a Cincinnati guy from his staff named Tommy Andrews. Tommy helped with a seamless transition and has become a critical part of my team. While he served two speakers with distinction, members of the conference know that he truly worked for all of them. Generous, warm, and unfailingly kind, Tommy has a servant’s heart. Beloved by members and staff alike, he has time for everyone and never encountered a problem he couldn’t solve. Tommy has been a ubiquitous part of this Republican majority, and he’s simply made the House a better place. Tommy’s one of the good guys. The House will miss him, but I am grateful for his time here and know that he will continue to serve this country well.”
