U.S. Rep Howard “Buck” McKeon has a new legislative aide and a new coordinator of new media at his office in Washington, D.C.

Ryan Crumpler is the new military legislative assistant, while Robert McAlister takes on the role of new media coordinator.

Crumpler has worked as a congressional staffer for five years, most recently for the office of Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas. Crumpler managed issues in the House Armed Services Committee and has worked on appropriations issues and served as the liaison to military installations.

Crumpler graduated from Texas Tech University with a bachelor’s in political science and business management.

“I am excited about the new dynamic in my Washington, D.C. office with the addition of our two newest team members,” McKeon said in a statement. “With the numerous military instillations in the 25th Congressional District of California, the military legislative role is a critical one, and Ryan brings strong practical experience to the position.”

Robert McAlister will be heading up McKeon’s Internet operations and Web outreach as the coordinator of new media, a new position added to McKeon’s office. McAlister served as new media coordinator on the campaign for Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La., in 2007. McAlister has a bachelor’s in mass communication from Louisiana State University.

“I am particularly energized about the new media coordinator role I have added to the office team,” McKeon said. “With Robert’s help and experience, I hope to harness the best technology available to communicate better with my constituents through the Internet and other new ways.”
