SALT LAKE CITY — Longtime state Senate chief of staff Ric Cantrell is moving to the same position in the Utah Attorney General's Office.
"Politics by nature are tumultuous, but Ric has helped us keep the ship on an even keel these last 14 years," according to Senate President Wayne Niederhauser, R-Sandy.
Cantrell formed the Senate's media strategy and made it one of the first government agencies to blog and use social media.
"He has used this talent to promote our successes, as well as to minimize the impact of some of our more foolish choices," Niederhauser said. "An unyielding advocate for citizen-owned government, he encouraged us to be open with the people of Utah."
Cantrell previously worked in the attorney general's office before going to the Senate.
