Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms named Georgia’s housing deputy commissioner as her chief of staff.
Carmen Chubb will start her new job at City Hall in March following Bottoms’ State of The City address, according to a city press release. Chubb serves as deputy commissioner for housing at the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, where she has worked for the past 25 years.
“Carmen Chubb has had an exemplary career in public service and will bring a strong track record of leadership to City Hall,” Bottoms said in a statement. “I also look forward to the housing insight and expertise that she will offer the administration.”
Bottoms’ former chief of staff Marva Lewis resigned from her position after only serving a year in her position. Lewis, who managed Bottoms’ 2017 campaign, is returning to the private sector.
