Bearded US House of Representatives Reading Clerk

Bearded US House of Representatives Reading Clerk

I saw the following photo of Nancy Pelosi taking the oath of office during the opening of the 116th United States Congress at the US Capitol on January 3, 2019, and wondered who the bearded gentleman was at the lower right of the dias. (Click the photo to enlarge.)



A little Internet sleuthing and I found out he is Joe Notovy, Reading Clerk. Here are a few photos of him (click to enlarge):







He began the job in 2010, and is the first openly gay reading clerk for the House. A couple articles on him:

He's probably also the first reading clerk to have that nice a beard, at least for a century or so.
