Jindal-GE-talkLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal continued reshaping his executive team, today as he announced that Gary Graphia will serve as Executive Counsel for the Governor’s Office. Graphia will replace Elizabeth Murrill who will now become Executive Counsel for the Division of Administration. Graphia will begin the new role on October 16. 

Jindal, last week, brought new blood in from his campaign team choosing another Teepell, the brother of Timmy Teepell to be deputy Chief of Staff. 

Lately, Murrill, received a bit of media criticism for a letter she wrote to the LSU Board.  Critics claim that she  suggested that LSU officials exert a “deliberative process privilege” as the rationale for withholding certain public records.
