1/26/2018 Kate Bramson named Senate Policy Director
STATE HOUSE – President of the Senate Dominick J. Ruggerio has named Kate Bramson as the Director of the Senate Policy Office.
Ms. Bramson comes to the Senate from The Providence Journal, where she was an award-winning journalist covering government and social policy. Through her in-depth research and critical analysis, she has gained a deep knowledge of Rhode Island’s economy, economic and workforce development efforts. She has a thorough understanding of the state’s business and education communities, as well as local and state government.
Ms. Bramson was chosen from a field of 40 applicants. “Although many highly qualified individuals applied – and we are grateful to all of them – Kate was exceptional. My team and I were remarkably impressed with her deep knowledge on a wide range of issues. I have been interviewed by Kate in the past, and I always respected her thorough knowledge of the topic she was covering. My admiration grew through the interview process for this position. She is exceptionally well-versed in many areas, and particularly economic development. Kate offered the kind of analysis and insights that will serve the Senate well as we work to make our state a better place to live and work. She will be joining an outstanding staff in our Senate Policy Office.”
Ms. Bramson will start on February 5. She replaces Marie L. Ganim, who left the Senate in July to become the state’s Health Insurance Commissioner.
