Washington, D.C. - Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi announced today that she has named Liz Pardue as her office's new Deputy Director of Floor Operations. Pardue begins her duties this month.
“From the Committee room to the House floor, Liz has proven a valuable asset to our caucus and showed herself to be dedicated, hard-working, and committed to the Democratic agenda,” Leader Pelosi said. “Her wealth of experience makes her a great addition to our office, and I look forward to working with her to move our party and our nation forward in the future.”
Pardue served most recently in the Democratic Office of the House Appropriations Committee, managing floor operations, coordinating Member activities on the floor, and working as the primary advisor to the Ranking Member on rules and procedural matters.
Previously, she worked in a variety of capacities on the House Rules Committee - as Associate Counsel, Assistant Counsel, a Professional Staff member, and Research Assistant.
Pardue holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Pomona College. She replaces longtime staff member Lori Pepper, who is moving to South Carolina.
“Though we are sad to see Lori go, we offer our utmost gratitude and appreciation for her wide-ranging contributions to the work of congressional Democrats,” Leader Pelosi added. “Lori will be missed in our office, and we know we will continue to work together in the years to come.”
