Lousisiana Commissioner of Administration Angèle Davis will leave her post Aug. 8 after more than two-and-a-half years as Gov. Bobby Jindal’s chief budget officer. The position involves oversight of daily government operations and development of the governor’s executive budget that is presented to lawmakers at the opening of the annual legislative session.
Paul Rainwater, currently Jindal’s deputy chief of staff, will succeed Davis in the job, which pays $204,000 a year. Kristy Nichols, secretary of the Department of Social Services, will replace Rainwater on the governor’s staff.
