Jindal chief of staff back after GOP campaign work
BATON ROUGE - The elections are over, so Gov. Bobby Jindal has his chief of staff back.
Timmy Teepell has returned to work at the governor's office after leaving his post for three months to work on Republican campaigns for governor in other states, with the Republican Governors Association.
Jindal spokesman Kyle Plotkin says Teepell was back on the job Monday as Jindal's chief of staff. He had been gone since August. Jindal's executive counsel, Stephen Waguespack, had filled in as acting chief of staff while Teepell was gone.
Teepell has been the governor's chief of staff since Jindal took office in 2008 and has been the chief architect of political strategy for Jindal since he was elected to Congress in 2004.
Teepell's RGA work was seen as a boost to Jindal's political connections around the country.
