Congressman John Curtis (R-UT) issued the following statement after hiring a new communications director this week.

Ally Riding comes to Curtis’ office from former Senator Orrin Hatch’s staff where she worked as press secretary. Prior to time spent in the Senate, Riding spent several years moderating social media for Mormon.org, and worked at a digital marketing agency coordinating reputation management and marketing campaigns for small businesses. She received a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Brigham Young University.

"I’m thrilled to have Ally joining Team Curtis. Her experience in the Senate, as well as her deep understanding for the district will make her a terrific asset,” Curtis said.
