LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson says his director of state-federal relations will take over as his chief of staff next month.

Hutchinson announced Friday that Alison Williams would start June 1 as the replacement for outgoing chief Michael Lamoureux.

Lamoureux, a former state legislator, announced earlier this month he was resigning for a job in the private sector.

Williams, an Arkansas native, has been working in the governor’s Washington office and has previously worked for the U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security and Defense. She also worked for Hutchinson when he was in Congress.

Hutchinson praised Williams as a “problem solver” and says he looks forward to having her back in Arkansas.


This story has been corrected to show that Hutchinson looks forward to having Williams back in Arkansas, not Washington.
