April 20, 2017: Alex Burgos is scheduled to resign before Tuesday, April 25, 2017, as the Deputy Chief of Staff and Communications Director for U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican. Burgos is scheduled to start working for TechNet, a national, bi-partisan network of innovation economy chief executive officers and senior executives, on April 25, 2017, as the organization’s vice president for federal policy, government relations and communications. Burgos has worked for Rubio for eight years. Burgos’ resignation follows that of another longtime Rubio adviser, former Chief of Staff Alberto Martinez. Their resignations from the office were delayed somewhat once Rubio decided to run for re-election, and win, instead of retiring after his failed 2016 presidential bid.
