JACKSON — A former Mississippi Republican Party chairman is becoming the new director of Sen. Thad Cochran’s state offices, where he’ll be in charge of constituent services.
Brad White begins the new job June 1. He succeeds Brad Davis, who is going to work for a private law firm.
White has been deputy state auditor and chief of staff for the state Department of Audit since September 2013.
He previously worked for the Public Service Commission, the Mississippi Department of Transportation and the Simpson County Development Foundation.
White became executive director of the state Republican Party in January 2008 and took on the dual role as party chairman in September of that year. He stepped down from both positions in early 2011, when he ran unsuccessfully for Simpson County chancery clerk.
