Riley poised to get new chief of staff
MONTGOMERY — Gov. Bob Riley's chief of staff, Toby Roth, will leave Friday to open the new Alabama office of a regional governmental relations firm. Dave Stewart, Riley's senior adviser, will be the new chief of staff.
Roth, 38, will head the Alabama office of Capitol Resources in Montgomery, which Riley's office said works for clients across the South at federal, state and local levels.
Stewart, 33, joined the administration as policy director in 2003. As senior adviser, he worked on legislative affairs and developed policy initiatives for the governor.
Mobile native Stewart previously worked for U.S. Rep. Jo Bonner on the Mobile Republican's 2002 congressional campaign and served as legislative assistant to U.S. Rep. Terry Everett, R-Rehobeth.
