Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today announced she has selected Torrie Miller Matous to serve as her Chief of Staff.

Matous will serve as Roby’s top adviser, leading a team of 15 staff members working from offices in Washington, D.C., Montgomery, Dothan, and Andalusia. Matous comes from the office of Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) where she has served as Communications Director for his personal office and the committees he has chaired since 2014. 

Prior to joining Senator Shelby’s office, Matous worked in several capacities for Representative Pete Sessions (R-Tex.) and the House Committee on Rules starting in 2009. She will officially begin in Roby’s office on Monday, March 13th. 

“I’m thrilled to announce that Torrie Miller Matous is coming on board as my new Chief of Staff,” Roby said. “Torrie is an exceptional leader with the right skill set to manage my office and all our various efforts.

“It is an exciting time for our office. With new committee responsibilities and the opportunity to work with a unified Republican government, we are in a great position to deliver results on behalf of our state and district. Torrie’s leadership will be essential to empowering my staff to serve the needs of Alabama’s Second District and to advance our commonsense, conservative solutions."

Matous, a Montgomery native, said she is eager to join Rep. Roby’s office and lead her hometown congressional office.

“It is an honor to join Representative Martha Roby’s team that works every day on behalf of the people of Alabama’s Second District,” Matous said. “Our unified government presents a great opportunity for Representative Roby to continue fighting for conservative principles in Washington. I look forward to working with her and am particularly excited to serve my hometown congressional district in this new capacity.”

Matous replaces Roby’s longtime Chief of Staff Stephen Boyd, who recently joined Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice. Roby thanked Boyd for his extraordinary service to her office and the State of Alabama.

“For six years Stephen Boyd led my office and helped me build an organization that truly makes a difference on behalf of those I represent. In all, he has more than 12 years of dedicated service to his country and state working in the Alabama congressional delegation. I cannot thank Stephen enough for his extraordinary service and loyal friendship over the years. He will be greatly missed from our office, but we are all very proud of him and excited for this next chapter in his career.”
