New Alabama lieutenant governor names Arab woman as chief of staff
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama’s newly elected lieutenant governor has named a north Alabama woman to serve as his chief of staff.
Lt. Gov.-elect Will Ainsworth says Judy Miller of Arab is believed to be the first female appointed to the position, which oversees operations in the lieutenant governor’s office.
Miller has worked as executive director of the Marshall County legislative office, and Ainsworth served as a state representative from Guntersville before winning the election for lieutenant governor last week.
“During my service as a state representative in Marshall County, Judy’s professional and political talents were obvious, and I am proud to have her lead my staff and help enact my agenda,” Ainsworth said in a news release.
