Governor-elect Tom Corbett finally took all the mystery out of who will become his next chief of staff.
Corbett has tapped William Ward. “Bill Ward and I have been friends for more than 30 years,” said Corbett.
Most recently Ward has worked for a law firm in Pittsburgh, where he specialized in civil and criminal cases.
Prior to joining the law firm of Ward McGough, Ward was a former chairman of Pennsylvania’s Board of Probation and Parole, he has also served in the capacity of First Deputy Attorney General.
Corbett’s decision comes about two weeks after Brian Nutt, his first choice for chief of staff suddenly bolted from Corbett’s Administration.
Nutt had worked for Corbett in the attorney general’s office and Corbett’s election campaign.
Nutt moved on to work for a political consulting firm in Harrisburg.
Corbett trying to take some of the sting out of losing Nutt said of Ward, “Bill’s proven management skills as a prosecutor, agency head and private attorney make him well-suited for the position of chief of staff.”
