The numbers guru to replace former Legislative Finance Director David Teal is Pat Pitney, the former budget office director for Gov. Bill Walker. Teal retired in December.

Pitney was the Office of Management and Budget director for Walker’s entire term in office, and came to the Walker Administration from the administration of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She will now lead the Division of Legislative Finance.

Pitney, along with Walker Administration Tax Division Director Ken Alper, and Administrative Services Director Rob Carpenter were finalists for the job.
