Eric Lesser, longtime assistant to David Axelrod, took the plunge this weekend and proposed to girlfriend, Alison Silber. Lesser is now a deputy to Austan Goolsbee, head of the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers.
The newly engaged couple has been dating for two years. Silber is a Maryland Law School graduate and clerks for DC Superior Court Associate Judge Zinora Mitchell-Rankin.
Lesser is a media favorite for his can-do spirit with the press corps. He returns to Harvard (where his undergrad buddies included Mark Zuckerberg) to attend law school in the fall.
