Gov. Jan Brewer named Shaun Rieve as the new Deputy Director of Legislative Affairs. Mr. Rieve replaces Lorna Romero, who was appointed Director of Legislative Affairs in November.

Rieve joins the Governor’s Office from the Arizona Department of Gaming, where he has served as a Legislative and Policy Analyst since 2011. In this role, Mr. Rieve worked closely with both the Governor’s Office and the Legislature regarding all legislation pertinent to gaming in the State of Arizona. He also played an integral role in advancing legislation to modernize the State’s personnel system, one of the Governor’s highest priorities of the 2012 legislative session. The measure was signed into law last year.

“Shaun has established an impressive legislative background in Arizona over the past several years,” said Governor Brewer. “He is a well-liked and well-regarded among State agencies and legislators, and is known for his expertise in public policy matters. Shaun is a welcome addition to my team.”

In addition to his current role within the Department of Gaming, Mr. Rieve also works in Game Operations for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Previously, he worked as a Legislative Liaison and Public Information Officer for the Arizona Department of Housing (2010-2011); Program Developer and Training Program Administrator for the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism (2010); Legislative Intern with the Governor’s Office of State Boards & Commissions (2009-2010); and Intern to U.S. Congressman Trent Franks (2006-2007).

Rieve has served as an appointed member of the Arizona Constitution Commemorative Commission and Arizona Juvenile Justice Commission. Among his community activities, he coaches a men’s softball team in Phoenix, and has worked as a Peer Mentor at Arizona State University and been a member of Rotary International.

Rieve graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s in Political Science (2009).
