Congressman-Elect, Eric Swalwell, Hires District Director, Shannon Fuller

CONGRESS |Newly elected Congressman, Eric Swalwell, hired one of his first staff members today, Shannon Fuller, as the District Director of the newly drawn 15th Congressional District.

The freshman congressman announced his new hire via Twitter while attending the Congressman orientation in Washington D.C. for newly elected representatives. The Tweet is as follows:

“To deliver responsive constituent services, I've hired Shannon Fuller as #CA15 District Director. Her organization & vision is what we need,” said Swalwell, “New #CA15 District Director Shannon Fuller is a Bay Area native, a mom, has worked for @EllenOTauscher & @JerryBrownGov, and loves cooking.”

According to Legistorm and Linkedin, Fuller was a fundraiser and finance director for Swalwell’s congressional influence, Ellen Tauscher. She also served as a scheduler for the U.S. House of Representatives and as an executive assistant for Jerry Brown’s campaign manager.


  1. Hope Swalwell hires a more diverse staff than his campaign or Stark's as well as someone west of 680 where most of his district constituents actually live.

  2. wtf are you talking about? did you even "know" stark's staff?

    Joe worked for stark forever. Terramoto did too. If you ever went to a town hall meeting you would probably know that.

    But good job on handing out payback jobs to your campaign staff eric. way to set an example of "changing" how washington works. patronage politics is alive and well. my guess is that putting in an underqualified nobody is going to be the first step in a very short lived career.
