TVW President to Become Gov Chief of Staff

Governor Gregoire announced this morning that current TVW President (and former UW Regent) Cindy Zehnder, will replace current chief of staff Tom Fitzsimmons who announced his resignation earlier this week.  Zehnder is a very familiar face in Olympia, having previously served as Chief Clerk in the House of Representatives and a deputy commissioner at the Department of Employment Security.

Zehnder has two degrees from the University of Washington and has served as head of TVW since 2003.  She will assume her new duties on October 1.
