September 15 Luncheon: Phil Maxson, Chief of Staff to Senator Mitch McConnell

Phil Maxson

Phil Maxson, Chief of Staff to Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), was the U.S. Capitol Historical Society’s (USCHS) honored guest at the Congressional Staff lunch on September 15.

Maxson joined members of the USCHS Leadership Council and Constitution Signers for lunch in Altria’s beautiful atrium overlooking the Capitol. Maxson shared remarks on one of America’s most influential early leaders and fellow Kentuckian, Henry Clay. He gained a deep appreciation for Clay by working as tour guide at Ashland, Henry Clay’s estate in Lexington, KY. It is from his work as a teenager, his love of history, and his passion for Kentucky that he drew inspiration for his work with Senator McConnell. To conclude the event, Maxson fielded diverse questions from the audience.

USCHS wishes to thank Altria for generously hosting and Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals for exclusively supporting this event.
