Niehaus Names New Senate Chief of Staff

(Columbus) - Ohio Senate President Tom Niehaus announced today that Jason Mauk has been named as the Ohio Senate's new Chief of Staff.

"Jason offers the Senate a unique background in management and communications that I believe will serve our members well," said Niehaus. "We were fortunate to have several talented and qualified individuals apply for the vacancy, but Jason has the experience we need to build on the sound foundation within the Senate and to challenge us to do even more. I look forward to working with him and the rest of our staff as they continue to provide excellent service to our members. I know he will help them take advantage of all the resources available to improve their constituent services and communication."

Mauk most recently served as spokesman for the President of the Ohio Senate and director of communications for the 23-member Ohio Senate Republican Caucus. He previously worked as executive director of the Ohio Republican Party, where he was responsible for the daily management of one of the nation’s largest state political operations. Mauk also spent six years as an award-winning journalist, covering local, state and national politics.
