Cooper names policy director, brings longtime aides on staff
RALEIGH (AP) — Roy Cooper is bringing in more people from previous Democratic administrations and from his tenure as attorney general to help him as North Carolina’s new governor.
Cooper announced Tuesday his policy director is Duke University faculty member Jenni Owen, who was previously a senior policy adviser to then-Gov. Jim Hunt. Owen is currently policy engagement director at Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy.
Cooper’s deputy chiefs of staff are Julia White and Stephen Bryant, both longtime aides to Cooper while attorney general. Bryant also worked for Hunt.
