Doolittle announces new chief of staff

Congressman John T. Doolittle, R-Roseville, has appointed Dan Blankenburg as his new chief of staff, his office announced this morning.

Blankenburg has been Doolittle’s deputy chief of staff for three years, based in his Washington office. He replaces Ron Rogers, who has accepted a position with California Senate Minority Leader David Cogdill and will be leaving Doolittle’s office at the end of April.

“With the appointment of Mr. Blankenburg, Congressman Doolittle will continue his commitment to constituent services that has been his trademark throughout his 18-year career in the House of Representatives,” the congressman’s office said in a statement released today.

In January, Doolittle announced he would not run for a tenth term, and will leave office in December 2008. For nearly three years, the FBI has been investigating Doolittle’s relationship with jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff, but no charges have been filed.
