The University of
Texas at Arlington has hired Jeff Jeter, former chief of staff and legislative
director for state Sen. Chris Harris, to represent UT Arlington in Austin as
the Director of Legislative Relations. He will begin work Sept. 17.
“Jeff was an
essential part of the team as Sen. Harris worked to pass legislation and craft
policy that improved the lives of his constituents in North Texas. We expect
he’ll bring the same high level of commitment and confidence to telling UT
Arlington’s story in Austin,” said UT Arlington President James D. Spaniolo.
Jeter joined Sen.
Harris’ staff in 2006 and has overseen all aspects of his Senate
office, including creating, negotiating and implementing his legislative and
political priorities. Jeter received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from UT
Austin. Before his tenure in the Senate, Jeter spent the first ten
years of his career serving two different Speaker administrations as
the assistant sergeant at arms in the Texas House of Representatives.
