Chris Slevin, who began his political career as a public information officer for the Township of West Orange 20 years ago, has been tapped for a senior position on Joe Biden’s White House staff.
Biden on Wednesday named Slevin as the deputy director of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs.
Slevin served as U.S. Senator Cory Booker’s legislative director from 2014 to 2018 and becomes the second top Booker aide to serve on Biden’s senior staff. Louisa Terrell, a former Booker chief of staff, will serve as director of the Office of Legislative Affairs.
Prior to joining Booker’s staff, Slevin spent seven years working for U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio.
After West Orange Mayor John McKeon won an Assembly seat in 2001, Slevin also served on McKeon’s legislative staff.
