Arizona governor makes changes to her senior staff

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has made changes to her senior staff, appointing a new deputy chief of staff and state Department of Administration director.

Brewer announced Thursday that Kathy Peckardt is her new deputy chief of staff.

Peckardt has been director of human resources at the Department of Administration since 2002.

The governor says Brian McNeil is rejoining her administration as ADOA director.

McNeil's appointment is effective Nov. 1 and Peckardt's on Nov. 9.

Brewer says both moves are necessary due to the promotion of Scott Smith to chief of staff.

Smith has held a dual role as deputy chief of staff and ADOA director.
