Shake-Up Among State Agency Chiefs

LITTLE ROCK, AR - There's a shake-up among state agency chiefs.

Governor Huckabee announced several changes yesterday.  His chief information officer is returning to the private sector and a Human Services deputy director will lead the state Employment Security Department.

Artee Williams, deputy director at DHS, will take over the Employment Security Department, where director Ed Rolle is retiring next week.  Williams starts his new post March 22.

Carolyn Walton, hired in 2002 to run the state computer systems, is being replaced by Doug Elkins, who has been number two behind Walton.

In other job changes, state Crime Laboratory director Jim Clark is resigning to take over the director's job at the University of Arkansas' Criminal Justice Institute.  J.R. Howard, commander of the law enforcement operations bureau for the Arkansas State Police, will take over the crime lab.
