Pennsylvania State Representative-Elect Brian Sims Names Temple Law Student as Chief of Staff

November 29, 2012 - Temple Law student Mason Lane '13 has been named Chief of Staff by Pennsylvania State Representative-Elect Brian Sims. Lane, who has been serving as Sims' Transition Director since the April 24 primary victory over longtime incumbent Representative Babette Josephs,  will develop and implement legislative initiatives, advise on policy matters, and oversee office operations.

This is not the first foray into Pennsylvania politics for Lane, a native of Center City who is also an alumnus of the Center for Progressive Leadership.  He previously served as the Eastern Pennsylvania Field Organizer and Policy Coordinator for Equality Pennsylvania, the Commonwealth's LGBT political advocacy organization.

In commenting on his selection of Lane and District Office Director Anna Aagenes, Sims remarked that "Philadelphia is full of really strong, progressive professionals and I knew I had an opportunity to recruit some of the best for these new positions. Mason and Anna will be fully integrated in every part of the work that I do to represent Center City. I'm pleased to work with them, but I'm also very excited by the talents that each will bring to the District and to Harrisburg."
