Corker Announces Tara DiJulio As Communications Director

Friday, February 28, 2014

Senator Bob Corker announced Friday that Tara DiJulio has joined his senior management team as communications director. DiJulio will serve as the senator’s primary spokesperson and will oversee communications and media strategy for his Senate office and the minority office of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“Tara is one of the most well-respected communicators on Capitol Hill, and I’m proud to welcome her to our team,” said Senator Corker. “She is a demonstrated leader and her talent and professionalism will be invaluable as we continue to serve the people of Tennessee and work to address the big issues facing our nation.”

Ms. DiJulio has served as a communications strategist to four U.S. senators, most recently serving as communications director for Senator Dan Coats (R-In.).

“I am excited to join this outstanding team and look forward to being a part of the great work Senator Corker is doing for Tennessee and our country,” said Ms. DiJulio.

Ms. DiJulio was elected by her peers to serve as the president of the Senate Press Secretaries Association in 2012 and has been a member of the executive board for five years. She also volunteers as a mentor with the Sara Start Fund for Foster Youth, a program that helps former foster youth get a start on their professional lives. She is a graduate of the University of Washington where she received a degree in communications and political science. Ms. DiJulio assumes her position immediately, replacing Laura Herzog who returned to her home state of Tennessee in December and now serves as deputy director of communications for Governor Bill Haslam.

Roy Exum: This Library Comes Alive

I am pretty positive that I haven’t stepped foot in a library in the last 50 years.
