Chafee nominates new director of administration

Posted: Updated:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee is nominating his policy director as director of administration.

The Democrat's office said Thursday he's nominating Steven Hartford to replace Richard Licht. Licht is being sworn in as a Superior Court judge next month.

Chafee's office also says Tom Mullaney will become acting director of the state Office of Management and Budget. Mullaney is executive director and budget officer in the Rhode Island Budget Office.

He'll replace Peter Marino, who was named CEO of Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island.

The Department of Administration oversees the administration of all Rhode Island departments and agencies. OMB provides fiscal analysis and research to the governor's office, General Assembly and state agencies and departments.
