Sen. Thomas R. Carper, D-Del., announced two staffing changes to his committee and personal offices Monday morning.

As chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Carper promoted Jennie Westbrook to be the committee’s communications director. She was formerly the committee press secretary.

Meghan Pennington has moved from the House to the Senate to become communications director for Carper’s personal office. Pennington and Westbrook replace the vacancy left by Emily Spain, who was promoted to legislative director in April.

“Jennie Westbrook has been an integral asset to our team over the past five years,” Carper said in a statement, adding, “As she takes on this exciting new role to spearhead the committee’s communications team, I have the utmost confidence that she will continue to thrive.”

Westbrook first joined Carper’s office in 2009 and worked as his press secretary. She then moved to the same position in his committee in 2013.

Pennington has worked as a communications director for the past two-and-a-half years for Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md. Before joining Sarbanes’ office, she worked as a press secretary for the late Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg, D-N.J., as well as deputy press secretary and press assistant for Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, D-Md.

“Her service in both chambers will prove to be an asset for me and Delawareans and I look forward to having her on our team,” Carper said of Pennington.

    Since coercion may be necessary in certain instances, the rule of law is also used to define the types and amounts of coercion that can be legally used by agents and administrators of the state.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

    Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your website in internet explorer, would test this… IE still is the market leader and a big portion of people will miss your wonderful writing due to this problem.

    Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Many thanks

    I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty value enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
