New Job for Nate Webb

Oklahoma City, OK – Fallin's chief of staff leaving to become lobbyist


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin says he won't be following her as she becomes Oklahoma's next governor.

Nate Webb worked for Fallin during her four years in Congress and also spent more than three years as her chief of staff when she was the state's lieutenant governor. He tells The Oklahoman he will join Capitol Gains, a lobbying firm in Oklahoma City.

The 54-year-old Webb says it's "an interesting opportunity that's presented itself" after years working in public service. Capitol Gains' founder and senior partner, Bobby Stem, says Webb's exact duties with the firm have not yet been set.

Fallin has named a longtime aide, Denise Northrup, to serve as her chief of staff once she becomes governor.
