As the KY3 Political Notebook reported last week, Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder announced Richard AuBuchon will serve as his new Chief of Staff.
AuBuchon replaced Eric Feltner, who resigned last month after being charged with furnishing pornography to a minor.
"Rich’s background and experience in public policy, law and state government will be tremendous assets in helping my office better serve Missourians," Lt. Governor Kinder said. “Rich has been a trusted advisor since he began working for my good friend, the late Commissioner of Administration Mike Keathley. I am extremely pleased that Rich has decided to join my staff and I look forward to having him lead the day-to-day activities of my office.”
AuBuchon, 32 of Jefferson City, presently serves as the Deputy Commissioner and Chief Counsel for the State of Missouri Office of Administration under current Commissioner Larry Shepker. AuBuchon oversees management of the Office of Administration, as well as handling all legal matters for the office.
