From an internal WSJ announcement sent by John Bussey and obtained by FishbowlDC:
I’m pleased to announce that Elizabeth Williamson is rejoining the Journal as a reporter covering regulation and business lobbying in the Washington bureau. She will report to Senior Editor Joe White.
For the last four years, Elizabeth has worked at the Washington Post covering government accountability and industry lobbying in Washington. She’s also reported on a range of congressional issues and contributed to the Post’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina, focusing in part on accountability within charitable organizations, such as the Red Cross.
From 2000 and 2003, Elizabeth worked for the WSJ on the foreign staff, reporting from Warsaw and covering Central Europe. She freelanced for the Wall Street Journal Europe from 1996 to 1999, reporting from the Balkans and Russia, among other locales. Previous to 1996, she worked as a community organizer in Chicago, ran a small ad agency that specialized in communications for non-profits, and worked in public relations for an Illinois health-care company.
Elizabeth graduated from Marquette University in 1985 with a BA in journalism.
Please join me in wishing Elizabeth success in her new job.
