Congressman Don Young Welcomes Two Staff Hires to Fairbanks and Washington, D.C. Offices
Washington, November 10, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Alaska Congressman Don Young announced the hiring of two staff members who will be working in his Fairbanks and Washington, D.C. congressional offices.
In Fairbanks, Nicole Angelo serves as Special Assistant to Congressman Young. In her role, she monitors and updates the Congressman and his State Director on state and local issues. Additionally, she acts as the Congressman’s liaison to federal, state, and local agencies, and answers casework correspondence and communications with constituents. The daughter of an Alaska State Trooper, Nicole is a lifelong Alaskan who has lived in numerous places from Nome to Soldotna, and has since settled in Fairbanks. She is a graduate of Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL and holds a degree in criminal justice.
In Washington, D.C., Lauren Noland serves as Legislative Correspondent. In her role, Lauren oversees constituent communications, manages all incoming and outgoing mail, processes flag and tour requests, supervises interns, and drafts legislative and non-legislative letters. Lauren was born in Anchorage and spent much of her childhood in Chugiak and Eagle River. Her parents still reside in the Anchorage area. She is a veteran of the U.S. Army and has spent significant time fishing in Alaska. Lauren is a mother of five and currently lives in Northern Virginia with her children and her husband, an Army Medic working out of Walter Reed Medical Center.
“When Alaskans need help with a federal issue, they often turn to their Congressman. I pride myself on providing excellent constituent service, but to do this, I must hire individuals with the same commitment to the people of our state,” said Congressman Young. “I am proud to welcome Nicole and Lauren to my team, and I look forward to working with them on behalf of Alaska’s families. Nicole is dedicated to providing open lines of communication between constituents in the Interior and myself, and I am grateful for her continued focus. Since January 2019, our office has responded to 182,616 phone calls, letters, and emails. Running a constituent mail program is a crucial task, but I am confident that Lauren, my fellow veteran, will help our office continue to deliver results for constituents. With these additions to my staff, our team will keep firing on all cylinders in the 117th Congress and beyond.”
“I am very grateful to Congressman Young for bringing me on board to help serve Alaskans. This state is my home, and I love sharing the unique beauty of Alaska as often as I can. Constituent service is my highest priority, and I have appreciated meeting with so many Alaskans about the issues that matter to them most. In the years ahead, I look forward to continuing to grow relationships throughout the region and helping Congressman Young secure results for them,” added Nicole Angelo.
“It is the honor of a lifetime to work for my home state Congressman in Washington, D.C. When Alaskans reach out to him on any given issue, they deserve timely and relevant responses. My roots in Alaska run deep, and I cherish visiting home as often as possible. I look forward to working with Congressman Young to continue facilitating high-quality communications between Alaskans and their sole Congressman,” said Lauren Noland.
