Congressman-elect Charlie Crist is naming Erin Moffet as Communications Director for his Capitol Hill office.
Moffet has spent nearly seven years running the press operations for Florida members serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Erin will be a strong addition to our team given her years of experience working with the Florida press corps,” Crist, the former Governor who now represents Florida’s 13th Congressional District, said in a statement Monday. “Her passion and understanding of the issues impacting Floridians will help us communicate effectively with the residents of Pinellas County to better serve our constituents.”
“It is an honor to continue working on behalf of the people of the great state of Florida as Communications Director in Governor Crist’s Congressional office,” Moffet said. “I am humbled to work for a true public servant who I know will always do what is best for his constituents, working each and every day to move our country forward.”
A former resident of West Palm Beach, Moffet has deep experience as a communicator in the Florida congressional delegation. Moffet got her start as Press Secretary for Congressman Alcee Hastings and later became Communications Director for Congresswoman Lois Frankel. She currently serves as Communications Director for retiring Congressman Patrick Murphy, working in his Congressional office since 2013 as well as on his successful House campaigns in 2012 and 2014.
Moffet received her undergraduate degree from Elon University and a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University, with a concentration in political communications.
