At Large Councilmember David Grosso has turned to a NoMa-area community leader to take the helm of his office.

Tony Goodman, who has represented NoMa and Near Northeast on ANC 6C for the past four years, became Grosso’s chief of staff Tuesday.

He succeeded Keenan Austin, who stepped down this summer to serve as the Florida political director for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Aside from Goodman’s duties as commissioner, he also serves as a member of the D.C. Pedestrian Advisory Council, according to his LinkedIn profile.

He most recently was a D.C. Department of General Services construction manager, working on projects that included a new pedestrian and bike trail that will run from NoMa to the National Arboretum.

Originally from the San Francisco Bay area, Goodman has lived in D.C. since 2002.

“The Councilmember is very excited to have Tony on board,” Grosso spokesman Matthew Nocella said in a statement. “Tony’s experience with various aspects of District government deepen the knowledge base of an already incredible staff and he looks forward to working with him on behalf of the people of the District of Columbia.”
