In September we introduced you to the Most Powerful Person You Know Nothing About, Kris Michell, Mayor Jerry Sanders’ then-chief of staff. Now is your chance to learn about Michell’s replacement.
Our Q&A this week is with Julie Dubick, Sanders’ new chief. My interview is scheduled for Thursday afternoon, so please send in your suggested questions before then.
Here’s how I described Dubick back when Sanders announced her hiring in December:
She’s an attorney, former partner at downtown law firm Seltzer Caplan and has worked as assistant director of the U.S. Marshals Service and with the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington D.C. She ran unsuccessfully for school board in 2000. Her biography from that time notes that she was the highest-ranking woman in federal law enforcement when she worked with the Marshals Service.
Dubick joined Sanders’ staff when he took office in 2005. Her legal background has allowed her to give the mayor guidance independent of the City Attorney’s Office.
