3rd staffer leaves U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office

Spencer Wayne, U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo’s legislative director, plans to leave his job in several weeks to pursue what Palazzo spokesman Hunter Lipscomb called a new opportunity.

Wayne is the third top staffer in the past two weeks to resign from the freshman congressman’s office.

Lipscomb has said frequent staff changes should come as no surprise in Washington, D.C. He praised the work ethic and attitude of the D.C. staff and the district office staffs in Gulfport and Hattiesburg.
