Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today announced changes to his staff serving the 22nd Congressional District of Texas. Beginning in June, William (Bill) Zito will serve as Olson's Chief of Staff.  Tyler Nelson, Olson's current Chief of Staff, will depart to work for Cornerstone Government Affairs splitting his time between Houston, Austin and Washington, DC.

"It is my pleasure to welcome Bill Zito as my new Chief of Staff, "Rep. Pete Olson said.  "Bill's Capitol Hill experience coupled with his impressive military career brings a fresh, perspective to the 22nd Congressional District. I know our constituents will benefit from his experience, decisiveness, skill and guidance."

"Tyler has been a part of my team since I began my tenure in Congress," Olson added. "His work ethic and diligence enabled him to advance quickly through our organization. His leadership and dedication to the people of the 22nd district of Texas will be sorely missed. I am confident Tyler will be successful in his next role - I wish him the very best."
