WALLA WALLA – U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ Walla Walla office has closed following the departure of its sole permanent staff member.
The Union-Bulletin reported former Deputy District Director Cathy Schaeffer, who left her position at the congresswoman’s office Tuesday to become a family adviser at Baker Boyer Bank, was the only person permanently stationed in Walla Walla.
Jared Powell, McMorris Rodgers’ press secretary, said the office will be closed until they find someone to replace Schaeffer.
Powell said in the interim, Walla Walla residents can contact staffers in McMorris Rodgers’ office in Spokane.
He said the congresswoman’s staff will also hold mobile office hours around southern Washington in October and November.
