Onward and Upward for Marin

Amy Gardner

David Marin, minority staff director of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, will move on to a new gig this month as a principal with the Podesta Group, a bipartisan government relations and public
relations firm with such clients as Google, Wal-Mart and BP.

Marin, who has been the right-hand wunderkind of U.S. Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.), joined on with Davis nine years ago, at the tender age of 29. He rose from the rank of Davis spokesman to staff director during Davis's tenure as committee chairman. Supervising a committee staff of 80, Marin led high-profile inquiries into steroid use in major league baseball, federal defense contracting and treatment of wounded veterans at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Marin is next in a line of Davis staffers likely to move on to new opportunities now that their boss has announced that he will retire at the end of the term. Already gone is David Foreman, who was Davis's field director and now serves as chief of staff to Fairfax County Supervisor Pat S. Herrity (R-Springfield).
