The staff on both sides will also look different when the Legislature reconvenes next year.
Speaking on behalf of the mostly GOP majority will be Carrie Shaw, who has been hired as its new communications director. She has a long background in marketing and public relations, most recently at Dick's Drive-In.
Booker Stallworth had held the job on an interim basis and remains on the communications staff.
Minority Democrats are also looking for a new spokesperson, a job that has been vacant for a while. Deputy chief of staff Jeff Reading had taken on the role on an interim basis but is leaving to work for senator-turned-Seattle mayor Ed Murray.
But the biggest hire Democrats need to make is a new chief of staff. Carolyn Busch has left the caucus to lobby for the King County Council.
