John Burgess Everett is the congressional bureau chief for POLITICO, specializing in the Senate since 2013. He’s a native Mainer, a University of Maryland graduate and one of those people who goes by his middle name.
Before covering the Senate, Burgess covered transportation policy for POLITICO and served on the production team. He’s also an alum of the Gazette in suburban Maryland and the Portland Press Herald in Maine.
Burgess resides in Takoma, D.C., which is not the same as Takoma Park, Md. He roots for the Terps and the Nationals and tries to keep up with the culture by listening to RapCaviar. He enjoys running when his ACLs are not torn and is known in the Senate for having slightly longer hair than other people.
