NORTHAMPTON – Today, Congressman Jim McGovern (MA-02), Ranking Member of the House Rules Committee, announced that Jon Niedzielski has been hired to serve as his Northampton-based regional manager. Niedzielski will serve as Congressman McGovern’s primary point of contact for residents, municipal officials, nonprofits, business owners, colleges and universities, and organized labor throughout the Pioneer Valley. Niedzielski will take over for longtime McGovern aide Keith Barnicle, who has accepted a job at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Mr. Niedzielski was appointed by President Obama in 2013 to serve as Massachusetts State Executive Director of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency. For over a decade before that, he served as Deputy Chief of Staff and District Director to former Congressman John Olver. A resident of Amherst, Niedzielski received his Bachelor’s Degree in History from Ithaca College, and a Master’s Degree in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.

“Jon has a deep knowledge of the issues that affect our community – and a proven track record of delivering results for people in Western Massachusetts,” said Congressman McGovern. “I know that he will help continue our tradition of providing outstanding constituent services, and I’m thrilled to have him in this important role.”

“I’m excited and honored to join Congressman McGovern’s team,” said Niedzielski. “I have long admired his tireless, progressive leadership and I’m thrilled at this opportunity to help him serve and engage with his constituents and communities in western Massachusetts.”
