Rauner announces new chief of staff

Rasmussen takes over for Goldberg

SPRINGFIELD - Illinois governor Bruce Rauner announced today that Richard Goldberg will be transitioning back to foreign policy, national security and consulting after more than three years as senior adviser to the Rauner 2014 campaign, deputy chief of staff for legislative affairs and chief of staff.

Kristina Rasmussen has been named the new chief of staff.

“Rich is one of the most talented policy, political and communications advisors I’ve ever met and I will forever be indebted to his faithful public service for the last three and a half years,” Rauner said. “I respect his decision to return to national security, foreign policy and consulting. Diana and I will always value his counsel and we wish him the best of luck in his next adventure.”

Prior to his service with Rauner, Goldberg served as deputy chief of staff for then-Senator Mark Kirk.
