Newly minted Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr rolled out his picks for senior leadership today. Replacing Solicitor General Britt Grant, who was appointed by Governor Deal to the Georgia Supreme Court, Carr is promoting Deputy Solicitor General, Sarah Hawkins Warren. Warren also served as the Special Counsel for Water Litigation and was heavily involved in the Supreme Court case between the Peach State and our southern neighbor.
As Chief Deputy Attorney General, Carr is tapping Department of Law veteran Dennis Dunn, who previously served as the director of the Government Operation Division at the department.
For his incoming Chief of Staff, Carr has selected Travis Johnson who previously worked for the Technical College System of Georgia and also served as the Deputy Chief Operating Officer for the state.
Below is the Attorney General’s statement accompanied by the full press release.
“When I was sworn into office, I promised to work with the outstanding staff at the Department to provide legal representation of the highest quality to the agencies, officers and employees of state government and make certain our Department continues to have a reputation of dependability, honesty and integrity with the citizens of the great state of Georgia,” said Attorney General Chris Carr. “As I’ve said before, 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.”
