Walorski Announces New Chief of Staff
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today announced Tim Cummings as her new Chief of Staff. Tim previously served as Chief of Staff of the Employee Benefits Security Administration at the U.S. Department of Labor and as Deputy Chief of Staff for Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-Texas). He is also an alum of former Rep. Dennis A. Ross (R-Fla.) and former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.). A native Virginian, he is a graduate of the University of Richmond.
“My job is to fight every day for 2nd District Hoosiers, and my staff plays a vital role in providing constituent services and making their voices heard in Washington,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “I’m excited to welcome Tim Cummings as my new Chief of Staff leading our Washington, D.C., and district offices. His extensive experience in both the legislative and executive branches will bring tremendous value to our team as we work toward bipartisan, commonsense solutions aimed at restoring our way of life, rebuilding our economy, and renewing the American Dream for every worker and family.”
The announcement follows the departure of Mike Dankler after more than five years in Walorski’s office. Mike had served as Chief of Staff since 2019, after earlier serving as Deputy Chief of Staff and Legislative Director.
“I’m grateful to Mike Dankler for his years of dedication and hard work on behalf of Indiana’s 2nd District,” Walorski said. “His deep expertise in trade policy and especially his tireless efforts to ensure fair treatment for small businesses and manufacturers seeking tariff relief helped us achieve meaningful reforms to level the playing field for American workers and companies. I wish Mike all the best in his next endeavors.”
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and the Ranking Member of the House Ethics Committee.
