By Allan Lengel

Tracy Schmaler, the deputy director of the Justice Department’s Office of Public Affairs, is moving on up.

Schmaler will take over the top spot in the office, replacing Matt Miller, who steps down next week, the website Main Justice reported.

Schmaler, a former reporter for the Vermont Bureau Press, had previously worked for the Sen. Judiciary Committee for Sen. Patrick Leahy.

The Justice Department distributed a statement from Atty. Gen. Eric Holder Jr.:

“Tracy has done an outstanding job as a member of the Department’s senior leadership for the past two and a half years, and I look forward to her continued advice and counsel as she takes on this new assignment. With background as a reporter and time on Capitol Hill, she brings invaluable experience and perspective to the issues the Department faces day in and out.”
