Carl hires top staff for congressional office

Congressman-elect Jerry Carl announced this week three staff hires: Chad Carlough as chief of staff; Elizabeth Roney as district director; and Zach Weidlich as communications director.

Carlough previously worked in current Congressman Bradley Byrne’s office as chief of staff.

“Chad has a wide breadth of experience on Capitol Hill,” Carl, a Republican from Mobile, said in a written statement. “I have the utmost confidence in Chad’s character and his ability, and I am excited to have him on board.”

Roney has served as district director in Alabama’s 1st District for many years, including for Congressmen Byrne, Jo Bonner and Sonny Callahan.

“Elizabeth’s long-standing experience will ensure a smooth transition from Congressman Byrne’s office to mine,” Carl said.

Weidlich was Carl’s campaign manager throughout the primary and general elections and also handled communications with the press.

“Zach did a great job running my campaign the last two years, and I am confident that he will continue to be an asset in my office.”

Inside Alabama Politics had previously reported that Carlough and Weidlich were being considered for top jobs.
