Attorney General Expands Role of Chief Spokesman
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Attorney General William P. Barr named his chief spokesman, Paul J. McNulty, to head a new Office of Policy and Communications.
Spokesman since last August, McNulty now also will supervise what previously had been the separate offices of policy development, public affairs and liaison services with law enforcement.
Mary Kate Grant, previously a speechwriter for President Bush, was named McNulty’s deputy director for communications.
Barr also announced that Doug Tillett, who had been deputy director of the office of public affairs, will become director, reporting to McNulty. Kristen Gear, a former White House associate director of media affairs, was named Tillett’s deputy.
