PHOENIX - Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has made changes to her senior staff, appointing a new deputy chief of staff and state Department of Administration director.
Brewer announced Thursday that Kathy Peckardt is her new deputy chief of staff.

The governor says Brian McNeil is rejoining her administration as ADOA director.
McNeil's appointment is effective Nov. 1 and Peckardt's on Nov. 9.
Brewer says both moves are necessary due to the promotion of Scott Smith to chief of staff.
Smith has held a dual role as deputy chief of staff and ADOA director.
