Katie Hobbs names longtime aide Allie Bones as gubernatorial chief of staff

PHOENIX — Democratic Governor-elect Katie Hobbs announced on November 21 that she has named Assistant Secretary of State Allie Bones as chief of staff for her incoming administration.

Bones, one of the Democrat’s longtime aides, has been registered on-and-off as a lobbyist since 2002. She previously operated a Phoenix-based nonprofit and served in the Napolitano administration. Bones has donated more than $6,000 to Hobbs’s campaigns.

Hobbs recently announced the members of her transition team, a roster that includes other lobbyists and campaign donors.
