WASHINGTON —U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) today announced the completion of his Communications team. The latest hires represent a strong communications operation that will be tasked with broadcasting the Senator’s legislative victories and developing the overall messaging strategy.
“I was sent to Washington to get things done for the people of Alabama, and I am proud to have a communications team that is dedicated to keeping the people of Alabama informed and highlighting our work on behalf of our constituents,” Tuberville said. “If Alabamians don’t know what their elected representatives are doing, we aren’t doing our jobs. Our communications staff is a critical part of Team Tuberville, and I am happy to have such experienced communications professionals on board to serve the people of Alabama.”
The appointments include Deputy Communications Director Gillum Ferguson, Press Secretary Kasey Lovett, and Digital Director Tamlyn Sheng. Tuberville previously announced the appointment of Ryann DuRant as Communications Director.
Gillum Ferguson will assist with the planning and execution of the Senator’s communications strategy. Ferguson has served in numerous communications positions across government, campaigns, and journalism in Washington D.C., Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia. Most recently, he served as press secretary and primary spokesman for Tennessee Governor Bill Lee during the COVID-19 pandemic, two tornadoes, and the Christmas Day bombing in Nashville. Before moving to Tennessee, he served as a special assistant to U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos overseeing the Department’s written communications and strategic coalitions. A graduate of the University of Virginia, Gillum resides in Arlington, Virginia with his wife.
Kasey Lovett will develop media outreach including statements, interviews, and press requests. Lovett recently served as the Principal Press Secretary for Housing and Urban Development Secretary Carson and in the White House Office of Communications as Media Advisor. Prior to her time in the Administration, she worked on Capitol Hill for several House members including Representatives Fleischmann (R-TN), Westerman (R-AR), and Fincher (R-TN). She graduated from the University of Arkansas with degrees in both Political Science and Communication.
