Gov. Tom Corbett's office today announced two changes in the administration.
Leslie Gromis Baker has been named his new chief of staff, replacing Stephen Aichele, who served in the role for 14 months after 17 months as chief counsel.
Gromis Baker has served as Corbett’s liaison with the federal government in Harrisburg and Washington, D.C. She is founder and president of the political consulting firm LG Strategies. She was Corbett’s senior adviser during the gubernatorial election.
Corbett’s office also announced the departure of Christopher Carusone, who is secretary of legislative affairs. He is leaving to become a partner in the Harrisburg office of the Philadelphia-based Conrad O’Brien law firm.
Andrew Ritter, executive deputy secretary, will assume the role of acting secretary in mid-August, according to the governor’s office.
