The Chief of Staff Association congratulates Amelia Chassé Alcivar on her recent appointment as the chief of staff to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.

Ms Alcivar has a long history in politics that likely started with her degree from George Washington University in International Affairs, Conflict and Security. Following this, she served as a legislative intern, then on John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. Afterwards, she went to the private sector route serving as Vice President for Hynes Communications. She then returned to politics serving as deputy communications director and press secretary for Governor Greg Abbot, under then chief of staff Daniel Hodge. Following this, Ms Alcivar served her first stint with Gov. Larry Hogan as his deputy communications director and then communications director, under chief of staff Matthew Clark. She then left to become communications director for the Republican Governors Association, the peak-body for republican governors and their staff in the United States. Now Ms Alcivar is back with Gov. Hogan and quoted in the official press release saying she’s ready to, “get to work to support the governor’s bipartisan record of protecting the health and safety of our families and our schools, strengthening our economy, and delivering for Marylanders.” 3

Building on her long history of public service, Amelia Chassé Alcivar looks to have a promising future as Chief of Staff to Governor Hogan, said Dr Aron D’Souza, Secretary of the Chief of Staff Association. The CSA wishes her well in this new role and continued service to the people of Maryland.

This bipartisan record is reflected in Governor Hogan’s high approval rating of over 70% according to a joint poll conducted by Northeastern University, Harvard University, Rutgers University 4, and Northwestern University. In her new role, Ms Alcivar will certainly look to continue Gov. Hogan’s success and the continued support of Marylanders.
