Gov. Jim Douglas officially made Dennise Casey his spokeswoman today.
Steve Wark, who has held that job for just three months, will return to the Department of Public Service. Wark has been out sick a fair amount in recent weeks, which had not really allowed him to gain his sea legs in a job where there is a lot of turbulence. Casey had done most of the media contact.
Back at DPS, Wark will handle the stimulus package maneuverings, which will include lots of potential telecommunications action.
The governor's staff will not shrink, however. Dave Corielle, who had been on the staff and had also been on his campaign staff but most recently had been in the Finance Department, will return as a staff assistant.
