ALABAMA: The Senate president pro tem’s chief of staff is leaving his role.
Philip Bryan, who has served as President Pro Tem Del Marsh’s chief of staff since 2011, is resigning his role as Marsh’s top aide to pursue a private sector job. His resignation is effective Aug. 31.
“Working under President Pro Tem Marsh and interacting with the members of the Alabama State Senate on a daily basis has been a highpoint of my career, and I will always value the experience, memories, and friendships that resulted from my service,” Bryan said. “I leave the Pro Tem’s office with pride in the job we have done and deep appreciation for the opportunity that Sen. Marsh provided me.”
The president pro tem is one of the most powerful politicians in Montgomery, leading the Senate’s majority caucus. Since Gov. Bentley’s resignation and Gov. Kay Ivey’s move to the Governor’s Office, Marsh has also presided over the Senate in the absence of a lieutenant governor.
Marsh thanked Bryan for his service to the State Senate.
