OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The former head of Oklahoma’s prison system has been appointed to the Oklahoma County Jail Trust.
The Oklahoma County Board of Commissioners on Monday announced Joe Allbaugh would fill a vacancy on the nine-member panel.
Allbaugh previously worked as chief of staff for then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush and later served as director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency after Bush was elected president.
Allbaugh replaces former trust member Tricia Everest, who resigned to become Gov. Kevin Stitt’s secretary of public safety.
