“Moving into the second half of my first term, I am redeploying administration resources to ensure we have the strongest team possible to help the people of our state create jobs,” the governor said in a prepared statement.
Murray starts in his new role July 30.
In addition to Murray, Walker appointed state Sen. Rich Zipperer, R-Pewaukee, to be his deputy chief of staff and senior counsel for the governor’s office.
