Murkowski Welcomes Angelina Burney to Alaska Team

Senator Hires Experienced Public Servant as Executive Assistant, Scheduler

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Lisa Murkowski today announced that Angelina Burney has joined her Anchorage office staff, where she will serve the Senator as an executive assistant and scheduler.  Burney has over a decade of community relations experience at the state and federal level working with elected officials, governing boards and senior management to implement public policy.

“Angelina’s value is in her ability to see government from all perspectives – federal, state and as an observer in the private sector,” said Murkowski.  “I am thrilled that she has joined my team and know that she will be able to hit the ground running as work picks up in the 113th Congressional Session in Washington, DC and critical Alaskan issues are raised immediately.”

Most recently, Angelina Burney was an aide to Eagle River Representative Dan Saddler as a member of his senior team on public events and public policy.  Before that, she worked for DOWL HKM and the Alaska Department of Commerce.

Burney replaces former scheduler and assistant Amy Erickson, who departed Senator Murkowski’s office in December to run the Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles.
