State Auditor Stacey Pickering has hired Brad White as his new chief of staff. White, a former chairman of the state Republican Party, had handling legislative affairs and constituent services for Central District Public Service Commissioner Lynn Posey. Posey switched to the GOP in December 2010 when White was chairman.
Bill Pope, who has been chief of staff in the auditor’s office since 2008, is retiring after 22 years.
White lives in the Simpson County community of Jupiter. He also previously worked for Mississippi Transportation Commission and the Simpson County Economic Development Foundation.
