PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs’ chief of staff is stepping down from her role, the governor announced in a press release Thursday.
Allie Bones is resigning after four and a half years working with Gov. Hobbs. She will be leaving her position effective immediately to pursue new opportunities.
“Allie Bones exemplifies the true meaning of a public servant, and I am incredibly grateful for her leadership throughout the transition and this first legislative session of my administration,” Hobbs said in the release.
“Her goal was to build a team that could work across the aisle to navigate divided government, and she accomplished that. With a successful bipartisan budget behind us, she’s ready for her next endeavor, and I wish her nothing but the best.”
Bones is the latest staffer to leave after a top aide to Hobbs, Josselyn Berry, stepped down in March after a controversial social media post related to a mass shooting in Nashville.
Before becoming chief of staff to Gov. Hobbs, Bones served as Assistant Secretary of State for four years.
Her replacement will be named next week.
