Ainsworth names Judy Miller Chief of Staff

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Lieutenant Governor-elect Will Ainsworth has named longtime Marshall County delegation adviser Judy Miller his Chief of Staff.

Ainsworth said Miller has more than 30 years of experience “working with legislators from both parties, drafting bills and resolutions, and handling constituent services,” for the entire Marshall County delegation.

“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,” he said.

Miller is believed to be the first woman to ever hold the position.

“Throughout the past four years, I have witnessed firsthand Will Ainsworth’s commitment to the citizens in his legislative district and his deep desire to improve their quality of life.  Now he is ready to devote that same work ethic and vision to all Alabamians,” Miller said.  “Will has instructed me to make his lieutenant governor’s office the most active and responsive in Alabama history, and I will work hard to carry out that mission.”

Miller serves on the boards of the United Way of Marshall County, the Child Advocacy Center of Marshall County, and the Marshall County Convention and Visitors Bureau.  A graduate of Leadership Marshall County, Miller founded the Marshall County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition and was selected as a “Local Hero” by the Sand Mountain Reporter newspaper in 2014.
