Perspectives of a Former Congressional Staffer: Derby will share insights from her 20 years of service as a staffer to Sens. James Jeffords and Patrick Leahy noting how extreme partisanship has obstructed the Senate’s ability to govern effectively. She will discuss how the events of Jan. 6, 2021 have changed the functions of daily governing from a staffer’s perspective and will encourage conversation about what might change in DC to make Congress more responsive to the needs of all Americans.
