Tom Kiehl, from the Liberal Democrats Lords Whips Office, scooped two prizes at this week’s Dods Parliamentary Researcher of the Year Awards.

From PoliticsHome:

The Lib Dems have triumphed at the Dods Parliamentary Researcher of the Year Awards for the second year in a row. At last week’s ceremony Tom Kiehl (pictured), who was nominated by Lord Shutt of Greetland, won Lib Dem researcher of the year and overall researcher of the year. Just like last year’s overall winner, Erin Harvey, Tom’s prize was a trip to Washington DC, courtesy of award sponsors the Federation of Small Businesses. The awards were held in the Speaker’s apartments and hosted by Speaker Bercow.

Tom told Lib Dem Voice:

I am genuinely stunned and thrilled to have my work acknowledged with these awards and to have played a part in the Parliamentary process. I am particularly proud of the work I have been involved in with the Lib Dem Peers as a Group over a number of years.

Parliament is such a wonderful place to work. The opportunities and experiences presented by working in such an august environment are truly remarkable. I would strongly urge anyone, whatever their background, to consider working in Parliament as an option that they can both aspire to and achieve.

Congratulations Tom!

    "Sanders said in 1998 that investment banks and commercial banks should remain separate entities." Good idea, even now.
