New Wyden CD: Melissa Merz

The CD job in Sen. Ron Wyden's shop has been vacant for about two months since Jill Greenberg left for AARP, but National Journal reports it's been filled by Hill vet Melissa Merz:

For the past three years, Merz has been working in Chicago as the press secretary to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Merz, 38, started her career on Capitol Hill in 1991, shortly after earning a bachelor's degree in journalism from Northwestern University. Initially, she was a receptionist for then-Rep. George Crockett, D-Mich. She next worked briefly as press secretary for then-Rep. Jim Jontz, D-Ind., before spending four years in the press office of then-Rep. Frank McCloskey, D-Ind.
