Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx has appointed Alyson Miller to the hybrid role of chief of staff and policy.
Miller will assume this newly created position later this month, when Foxx's current chief of staff, Jennifer Ballard Croft, leaves the office for a role in the private sector. Miller has been with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office (CCSAO) as deputy chief of staff since February 2017 and has acted as interim director of policy since August 2020.
Prior to joining the CCSAO in 2016, Miller spent 12 years in the private sector working as a consultant to early-stage startups specializing in supply chain and third-party logistics management.
Foxx is slated to make more announcements around her specific policy agenda in the coming months, including initiatives to tackle gun violence; providing a renewed commitment to working closely with police departments on effective policies; utilizing community partners as advisors; and more.
