Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) announced several staff changes in his D.C. office. Westerman released the following statement:

“I am blessed to have incredible staff in both my D.C. and district offices, who aid me in countless ways and are committed to serving Arkansans. Emily has been an integral part of my team, and her counsel and advice has been invaluable in writing legislation. Our whole office will miss her, but we wish her all the best in her exciting new position. I’ve been privileged to watch Nick grow in his position while receiving his masters degree, and I know he will thrive in this promotion. Finally, I’m thrilled to welcome Kayley and Elizabeth aboard. These are exciting changes and I look forward to the future!”

Emily Mace received her undergraduate degree in Searcy, Ark., and has been the congressman’s legislative assistant for two years, covering health care, labor, welfare, budget and judiciary legislation. With an extensive legal background and health care knowledge, Mace was instrumental in crafting the Fair Care Act, which Westerman introduced in February 2019. Mace will be leaving Westerman’s office June 7 to join the staff of U.S. Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va.) as his health care counsel.

Nick Lisowski, from Rogers, Ark., has been the congressman’s legislative aide for two years, handling all constituent mailings. Lisowski also oversaw several legislative issues, including veterans affairs and education. Lisowski will take on Mace’s portfolio of health care and other issues when she leaves Westerman’s office.

Kayley Corley, from Booneville, Ark., joined the congressman’s staff May 28 as his new legislative correspondent, and will fill Lisowski’s former role after his promotion. Corley graduated in May 2019 with her Masters of Public Service and Administration from the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.

Elizabeth Teed, from Arkadelphia, Ark., has been with the congressman for several weeks as a summer intern, and will take on the staff assistant position in the front office. Teed has already served constituents by leading tours, answering calls and taking photos, and she will continue all these responsibilities and more in her new role.
