Rep. Peter Welch must be assuming he'll be back in office in January. He's hired a new spokesman.
It'll be former Brattleboro Reformer reporter Paul Heintz.
A news release from Welch's office says Heintz was a desk assistant for PBS' "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer" and an intern with National Public Radio's "On The Media." He also interned in the office of Rep. Michael Capuano, D-Mass.
He graduated from Dartmouth College in 2006.
He replaces Andrew Savage who has been promoted to deputy chief of staff/legislative director.
