JOHNSON CITY, TENN – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) announced that his District Director, John Abe Teague, will retire at the end of the month. Roe also announced his field representative, Bill Darden, will take over as District Director, and Daryl Brady, who worked for Leadership Knoxville, has joined the office as field representative.

Roe released the following statement on the staff changes:

“John Abe Teague is a dear friend who has been with me from day one. He is truly an invaluable asset to my team and to the constituents he served in East Tennessee. After a longtime career in the private sector, he has demonstrated remarkable commitment as a public servant, and has served the First District with humility and a tireless energy. While I’m sad to see him retire, I know his wife Vicki and their family look forward to enjoying more time on their farm together and traveling. I thank him for his service and wish him some well-earned downtime.

“I’m honored that Bill Darden has agreed to lead my district team. Bill also came from a private sector background and has put his experience in building relationships to use in service to East Tennessee. He is well-respected throughout the First District, and I know he will continue to serve constituents with the same dedication he demonstrated as field representative.

“I’m also thrilled that Daryl Brady has joined our team. Daryl has served in local politics in Jefferson County and has long worked to create a better environment for job growth and business development in East Tennessee, something that is so critical to my job in Congress. Bringing in someone with Daryl’s experience will ensure constituents who need assistance won’t miss a beat. As always, my entire district team stands ready to help anyone who is having trouble with a federal agency.”
