California Senator Kamala Harris has appointed longtime communications and marketing expert Heather Hutt, as her new, Southern California Deputy Director.
Hutt will act as Harris’ liaison with the communities of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
“My state team is comprised of diverse leaders and well-respected professionals who each have deep ties to California,” Harris said when the appointment was announced. She continued, “Heather, who is from the community, is a seasoned professional with a diverse range of skills and expertise, and I am excited to have her on our team working on behalf of all constituents.”
Hutt is a second-generation Californian who feels passionate about the community she serves, and that translates, Harris said, into her being the best person for the job.
In a recent interview Hutt shared, “I’m passionate about what happens in our state, and have been fortunate enough to work at the state level for Senator Isadore Hall as his District Director. And now, I’m blessed to be able to work for Senator Kamala Harris.”
Hutt continued, “It’s an amazing experience and I’m proud and honored to have been chosen to work for her.
Hutt shared how she prayed a lot to be able to get a position and work for somebody like that. “It’s really about the passion for your community,” she explained, “That puts you in a position where you want to work with somebody who [also] has that passion.”
“I have her back,” Hutt proclaimed. “I’m going to engage the community as much as possible so that they know she has their back.”
