Cori Mills Named New Deputy Attorney General
Attorney General Treg Taylor announced Cori Mills as the new Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Law.
Mills started with the department in 2012 as legislative liaison and public outreach coordinator for the Civil Division. She spent eight years in that role where she honed her legislation skills, worked on budget and fiscal issues, and served as special assistant under two former Attorneys General. In May of 2019, she transitioned to the elections attorney position in the Labor & State Affairs Section until becoming supervisor of that section in August 2020.
“Cori has a deep respect for the department and its role in assisting the State’s elected and appointed officials in carrying out their duties,” says Attorney General Treg Taylor. “She has been involved in many high-profile issues the department has faced over the years, and she is the ideal person for this role.”
