I was away last month when Andrew Savage left a message about his departure from Peter Welch's office in D.C. to go work for an anti-global warming group. I was planning to blog about it before he actually stepped foot out the door.
No need for that now. Savage isn't going anywhere, except to a new role within Welch's office. He'll be deputy chief of staff/legislative director, replacing the departing Connie Dougherty on Nov. 15. Savage will be directing Welch's policy staff.
Welch was apparently savvy enough to know that Savage, who's been with him through the Vermont Senate, through his election to Congress and on to D.C., was worth keeping around. No word yet on who will replace Savage as Welch's communications director.
