Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) announced today that Jeff Giertz will rejoin his office to serve as communications director, effective next Monday, September 19th.

“I’m thrilled that Jeff is returning to my office,” Braley said.  “His deep experience in communications and passion for serving the people of Iowa will make him a great addition to my team.  I know he will serve the press – and Iowans – with the responsiveness and professionalism he is known for.”

Giertz, a native of Moline, Illinois, first worked for Rep. Braley during his successful 2006 Congressional campaign.  Giertz then served as Rep. Braley’s communications director during his first two terms in Congress from 2007 until October 2009.  After leaving Rep. Braley’s office, Giertz worked as communications director for US Rep. Charlie Melancon’s unsuccessful 2010 bid for US Senate in Louisiana.  Since January, Giertz has worked as communications director for the North Carolina state Senate Democratic Caucus in Raleigh, NC.

Giertz is a 2005 graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
