After 18 years, a new chief of staff for Walsh
For the first time since Jim Walsh went to Congress 18 years ago, he will have a new chief of staff. The change occurs soon after the 110th Congress convenes in January.
Jutton, 70, a Central New York native, decided to retire and spend more time with his family in the Syracuse area, Jim Walsh said Friday. Jutton who used the title administrative assistant, will be replaced in Washington by Dan Gage, who has worked out of Walsh's Syracuse office in the Federal Building as communications director.
Gage, 35, has worked for Walsh since 2000. He spent about seven years in the 1990s working at Syracuse City Hall for former Mayor Roy Bernardi, ending
his tenure there as director of public affairs.
