Wyoming governor-elect names AG, chief of staff
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s newly elected governor has chosen two high-level administrators already in state government to be attorney general and his chief of staff.
Governor-elect Mark Gordon announced the hires Monday.
Bridget Hill will be attorney general, replacing Attorney General Peter Michael. Hill has directed the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments since 2013. Before that, Hill was the attorney for several different state agencies.
Gordon’s chief of staff will be Pat Arp, who is currently deputy state treasurer. Arp was deputy secretary of state for 20 years before she went to the Treasurer’s Office in 2015.
Mary Kay Hill is chief of staff for outgoing Gov. Matt Mead.
Gordon is a Republican. Gordon got over two-thirds of the vote to beat Democrat Mary Throne in the election Nov. 6.
