Former Guerra Chief of Staff Joins Cornerstone Government Affairs

Longtime Texas legislative expert adds new policy expertise

Cornerstone, a leading, bipartisan government relations and public affairs firm with federal and state reach, announced the addition of Anne Mazuca Tuesday as vice president in the firm’s Austin, Texas office.

Anne brings to the firm more than a decade of legislative experience working at the Texas Capitol serving members from the Dallas, Galveston and South Texas regions. Throughout her tenure in the Texas Legislature, Anne built relationships with local elected officials, community leaders and stakeholders from across the state, while also engaging on a wide range of policy issues.

Most recently, Anne served for six years as chief of staff to State Representative R.D. ‘Bobby’ Guerra and was responsible for guiding the day-to-day operations of her Capitol and McAllen offices. Additionally, Anne provided support for her member’s re-election campaign, giving strategic advice, assisting with messaging, and fulfilling all Texas Ethics Commission and campaign finance filings requirements.

Before being named chief of staff, Anne served as a legislative director and legislative aide and was the policy lead for Guerra’s work on the House Appropriations, Public Health, Energy Resources, State Affairs, and Ways & Means committees.

“We are thrilled Anne is joining our team, adding valuable policy expertise and political relationships across the Capitol,” said Campbell Kaufman, the firm’s managing director for state government relations. “She will have an immediate impact, and we are lucky to have her.”

Anne joins a well-established Cornerstone team in Texas that includes Martin Hubert, Craig Holzheauser, Steve Holzheauser, Justin Jordan, Tim Schauer, Tony Essalih and Tyler Nelson.

“I am excited to be joining the team in Austin, where I hope to build on the success and proven track record Cornerstone has earned by consistently delivering reliable results for their clients,” said Anne. “I look forward to bringing my expertise and experience to the team to ensure successful outcomes for our clients as we continue to grow our footprint in Austin.”
