Beau Mills, a veteran of state and local government, has gone to work as the new district director for 4th District Democratic Congressman David Price.
Mills replaces Rose Auman, who is retiring after nearly 12 years as Price's district director, Rob Christensen reports.
Mills is well known in government circles. He has worked as an advisor to former Gov. Jim Hunt, as the executive director of the N.C. Metropolitan Mayors Coalition and most recently as a partner at Fountainworks, a public policy and market research firm in Raleigh.
Price also announced the hiring of Andrew High to be his press secretary. High, a Durham native, has worked the past two years as a press aide to California Congresswoman Linda Sanchez.
He replaces Phil Feagan, who is now attending law school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
