After 11 years on Capitol Hill, today is Aaron's last day in Congress. He received a Presidential Appointment to serve as the Director of Legislative Affairs at FEMA. Aaron has worked so hard for so many hours in a job I would find endlessly frustrating. But none of that hard work was for naught. Back in 2010, when his boss lost reelection, Aaron was flooded with calls and emails from people in both parties offering to help him find something new. And again when he was approached and nominated for this position, there was no shortage of people stepping up to provide praise and support.
Many times my Uncle David has told us kids a version of this advice - sometimes your name is the only thing you have so make it mean something. My eyes well up with tears of pride when I realize how much the name Aaron Davis means on The Hill. Through years of hard work, respect and just being himself, an all around nice guy, Aaron has created a positive name for himself in an industry where having a known name isn't always a positive thing. Nate and I could not be prouder.
