Spokesman for Rep. Frank to join Treasury staff

Rep. Barney Frank’s (D-Mass.) top spokesman on financial matters is heading to the Treasury Department.

Steve Adamske is moving over to Treasury as Andrew Williams, the department’s main spokesman, prepares to leave by the end of August, the two spokesmen said. Adamske will serve in Treasury’s public affairs department.

Both played central roles in the 18-month effort to pass sweeping financial regulatory legislation that President Obama signed into law last week.
