WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander today named Christine Dodd as his new legislative director. Dodd replaces Harrison W. Fox, Jr., who has returned to his military housing business. "I appreciate Harrison's service," Alexander said. "His varied background and years of experience in both the public and private sectors were valuable assets to our team. "I look forward to working with Christine," Alexander continued. "Her interest in education and the environment will be key as we continue to focus on these priorities this year." Prior to joining Alexander's staff, Dodd, 32, served as legislative director to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). She also served as health and education legislative assistant and legislative director to Rep. Tom Sawyer (D-OH). In the private sector, she was business development manager for JD Edwards World Solutions and a health care/corporate lawyer in Atlanta, Georgia and Cleveland, Ohio. "I am very excited to be working for such a highly-regarded senator whose expertise in education and other domestic policy issues is unrivaled," Dodd said. An Ohio native, Dodd earned a bachelor of arts degree from Ohio University. She received her law degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Law where she served as Law Review editor. Dodd assumes her post today.
