Rasky Partners has hired Matt McNally, who was chief of staff to New York Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, as senior VP in its DC office.

Maloney, who was the first openly gay person elected to Congress in the Empire State, was defeated by Republican Mike Lawler in 2022 in the revamped 17th district.

McNally advised Maloney on the response to COVID and his work on the agriculture, transportation and intelligence committees.

He also ran Maloney’s successful effort to chair the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Prior to working with Maloney, McNally was New York City’s top Washington lobbyist.

Justine Griffin, principal at Rasky Partners, called McNally “one of those rare practitioners who began as a talented operative and has grown to become a trusted advisor to many power players in both DC and New York.”
