Washington • Congressman-elect Chris Stewart has hired two key staffers marking the early steps in his transition to federal office.
He tapped Brian Steed, his campaign manager, to be his chief of staff. Steed, a Logan native, previously taught economics at Utah State University and was once a deputy county attorney in Iron County. He will relocate to Washington, D.C., and manage Stewart's House office.
Stewart also hired Dell Smith to manage his affairs in Utah as his state director. Smith has performed those same duties for Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, during the past four years
