We continue our series about people who work in industries that do important and good work but who are often seen with less favor by many, particularly those in the world of social media. We have a list:

  • Professional bloggers – X
  • Congressional staff members
  • Political consultants
  • Television journalists

For the next several weeks we will talk to people in those professions to get their stories. Nothing filtered. You’ll be able to hear directly from them.

This week is Rob Adkerson. Rob is the Chief of Staff for Congressman Barry Loudermilk. Rob has the distinction of being an outsider (a small businessman from the Atlanta area) to becoming a DC insider so he has the perspective of both sides and his outlook is really fascinating.

Rob talked to Neal and Jay about what he does in his role, how he and Congressman Loudermilk would hire other staff, the goings on behind the scenes and the difficulty and hard work it takes to get good work done on Capitol Hill.
