Sen. Lee Welcomes Jillian Wheeler to Communications Team

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) announced that Jillian Wheeler has accepted the position of press assistant in his Washington, D.C. office.

Wheeler will replace Emily Long, who has served as Senator Lee’s press secretary since January 2011.

Senator Lee issued the following statement regarding this transition: “Emily has been a great asset and friend to my office for over six years, and she will be greatly missed. Jillian has been a great team member in our office for over a year now and I am confident she’ll contribute even more in her new role.”

Wheeler joined Senator Lee’s office in 2015 as the correspondence coordinator. Prior to that she served as the outreach coordinator for the Utah Republican Party and as the scheduler and staff assistant for Representative Greg Walden (R-OR).
