Chafee to tap Trainor, Stevens and McDonald for top staff posts

November 30, 2010

Gov.-elect Lincoln Chafee is expected to soon name three deputy chiefs of staff to over see his inner office. According to sources, they will be long-time Chafee advisor and confidante, Jonathan Stevens, top campaign aide Michael Trainor and Jamia McDonald, a top aide to Governor Carcieri. Tranior is expected to over see communications but no press secretary has yet been chosen, according to sources. Stevens is a long time Chafee friend who worked in several roles for Chafee. Trainor ended up as Chafee’s campaign manager near the end of the campaign after J.R. Pagliarini left. And McDonald is one of the few Carcieri holdovers.
