Lieutenant Governor Todd Lamb said Susan Winchester has joined his staff as chief-of-staff succeeding Keith Beall who resigned in June to join Oklahomans for Lamb as campaign manager. Winchester, of Chickasha, will serve the remainder of Lamb’s current and final term, which expires in January 2019.
She most recently was president of the Research Institute for Economic Development (RIED) from 2009-2017. She served in the Oklahoma House of Representatives from 1998-2008, and also was chair of the Oklahoma City National Memorial Foundation Board of Trustees from 2014-2016.
“I am excited Susan has chosen to join my staff at the state Capitol for the remainder of my term,” Lamb said. “Her knowledge of state government and Oklahoma’s business and economic environment will be very helpful as I continue to recruit and advocate for businesses to consider Oklahoma.”
