Women Take the Reins in Two Key Appointments to Governor's Staff
Last week big news was made when Governor Greg Abbott announced a new leadership team in his Austin office. You can visit the Austin American Statesman or the Texas Tribune to read more of the specifics, but I wanted to offer a big high-five to the women joining the ranks of the Governor's new leadership team:
Peggy Venable, Appointments Director. Venable is the former Texas director for Americans for Prosperity and a senior visiting fellow at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
Sarah Hicks, Budget Director. Hicks previously served as Finance Committee director under former State Senator Tommy Williams who is also joining Abbott's team as a senior adviser for fiscal affairs. She also worked for Williams at Texas A&M.
