Washington, D.C. – Bill Novotny moved up in the ranks of Senator Mike Enzi’s staff recently with his promotion to senior research assistant.
Novotny, a former staff assistant for Enzi, will now be working with issues concerning energy and natural resources, the environment, agriculture, appropriations, small business, economic development, judicial nominations, and defense and homeland security.
"I am proud to be a part of Senator Enzi's team in Washington and helping him advocate for Wyoming,” said Novotny. “Washington is a long way from Johnson County but I am pleased to be involved in issues that have a direct impact on the state." The son of Dr. Bill and Marilyn Novotny, and grandson to Beulah Novotny, Novotny graduated from Michigan State University in May 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in international relations with a concentration in agri-business management. He is currently pursuing a masters degree in Strategy from the Naval War College with completion anticipated in the spring of 2006.
“Bill’s willful energy is a great ingredient to my DC team,” said Enzi. “His love for Wyoming and excitement for the political process is a combination for success.”
Novotny graduated from Buffalo High School in 1999 and served as an intern for Senator Thomas during the summer of 2001.
Novotny was recently elected as the events chairman for the Wyoming State Society and will serve a one year term coordinating and planning events for Wyoming residents in the nation’s capital.
