Attorney General announces staff changes

[private]Newly appointed Attorney General Chris Carr has announced several administrative changes in the state law department.

Dennis Dunn, a 33-year veteran of the department with a deep knowledge of election law, has been named chief deputy attorney general. Dunn will be the primary legal advisor to the attorney general and supervise all attorney casework.

Sarah Hawkins Warren replaces Britt Grant, recently appointed to a judgeship, as the solicitor general, the attorney in charge of appealing cases handled by the law department. She was previously the deputy solicitor general and was involved in Georgia’s ongoing water lawsuit with Florida.

Travis Johnson was named chief of staff, where he will be the primary liaison on public policy matters, government and community relations, and legislative affairs. Johnson had been the assistant commissioner of external affairs for the Technical College System of Georgia.

“The seriousness of this work requires focus and a readiness to tackle our state’s challenges and opportunities — and that’s what Georgians can expect from Dennis Dunn, Sarah Hawkins Warren, and Travis Johnson,” Carr said.
