Gov.-elect Mike Dunleavy’s transition team announced four high level appointments Monday. John Quick, current chief of staff to Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce, is on list.
Quick will head the Department of Administration. The department houses several state agencies, including the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Public Defender Agency and the Office of Public Advocacy. A handful of commissions, including the Alaska Public Offices Commission, also fall within the department’s wheelhouse.
