As Chief of Staff, Davis will assist the Secretary of State with leading day-to-day operations of the Office. Other job responsibilities include: managing all locations and offices of the Agency, working closely with the preparation and implementation of the Secretary of State budget, and assisting in the formulation and implementation of Secretary of State policy.
