Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon announced today the resignation of his long time District Director, Scott Wilk.
"Scott has been a tremendous asset to my team. None have been better in helping me to keep in touch with the people of the 25th Congressional District and while I am very happy that he will have the chance to pursue other opportunities, I am genuinely sorry to see him move on," said McKeon.
Wilk announced his intention to resign in a letter dated from last week. He will continue to serve as McKeon's District Director until the end of the year, after which time he intends to begin his own public affairs practice.
"During these years I've met so many great people and I will carry forward many of those friendships for life," noted in his resignation letter.
Wilk served McKeon for 5 1/2 years and was based out of McKeon's Santa Clarita office.
Wilk thanked McKeon for his leadership in Congress noting, "You have been a tremendous role model displaying compassion, fairness and integrity. Your example will serve me well in future endeavors,"
"Scott is off to a great new future. In the nearly six years he worked for me he was an integral part not just of my staff, but of the 25th District. He is a community leader in his own right and I have no doubt that we will be seeing a lot more of him in the years to come," added McKeon.
As of yet, no replacement has been named to the District Director position.
