Roby selects chief of staff
Roby, a Republican who defeated Democratic freshman U.S. Rep. Bobby Bright in the Nov. 2 election, named Stephen Boyd as her chief of staff on Friday.
Boyd, an Alabama native, is currently the communications director for Sessions. He will manage the Washington, D.C., and Alabama offices for Roby in the 2nd District, which stretches from Autauga and Elmore counties down to the Florida border in southeast Alabama. He will help oversee the legislative agenda and constituent services.
Boyd was chief spokesman for Sessions and managed his state and national communications. With Sessions as the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Boyd handled communication efforts for Republicans on a number of high-profile issues including the appointment of two justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.
