Kansas Ag Connection - 05/16/2019

U.S. Senator Pat Roberts Wednesday announced changes to his press staff in the personal office and the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee due to the departure of long-time Communications Director Sarah Little. Little leaves Roberts' office after 20 years of Senate service to pursue opportunities outside Congress.

"Sarah started on my staff as an intern from Prairie Village, Kan., 20 years ago," Roberts said. "She is a skilled communicator who has worked hard on behalf of Kansas and the nation, especially following the terrorist attacks of September 11, and most recently for America's farmers and ranchers. She has steered our message through four farm bills, through intelligence reform and the Iraq War and through countless efforts on behalf of Kansans. We are sad to see her go, but wish her all the best in her future endeavors."

Stacey Daniels, Roberts' current press secretary, will be promoted to communications director in Roberts' personal office. She previously worked in the U.S. House of Representatives as a communications director. Stacey has a bachelor's in journalism from the University of Missouri School of Journalism and worked as a television reporter in Columbia, Mo. and Eugene, Ore. before transitioning to communications work.

Daniels will continue to work with Meghan Cline who has been promoted to communications director of the Senate Agriculture Committee. Cline has served as the committee's press secretary for four years. Previously, she served as assistant director of communications for the National Pork Producers Council. Cline was born and raised in Dalton, Ga., and earned bachelor and master of science degrees in agricultural communications from the University of Georgia and Oklahoma State University, respectively.

Lora Cox in Roberts' Wichita office will continue in her role as digital communications manager. Cox has worked for Roberts since 2014, and has a broad base of experience that incorporates communication, organizational management and graphic design. She is a graduate of Friends University in Wichita and lives in Valley Center, Kan.
