Press Release
Thursday, October 26, 2017

AUSTIN - Today, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick announced the departure of his Policy Director, Kate McGrath. McGrath will be replaced by John Gibbs, who is currently the Policy Coordinator for the Lt. Governor’s Office.   

"Kate has been a tremendous asset to this office since my first day as lieutenant governor. She is a hard-working team leader who has played a key role in assuring that my conservative policy priorities moved forward in both the 84th and the 85th legislative sessions. I know Kate will continue to be successful as she takes on a new career challenge. John has been a trusted member of my team since I first became a senator. He is a principled conservative who is committed to crafting public policy that will benefit Texans for generations to come." 

McGrath has worked in the Capitol for 16 years in a variety of policy related positions, including serving as Director of Budget, Planning and Policy for former Gov. Rick Perry. Gibbs served as Patrick’s Senate Chief of Staff and Legislative Director. Lt. Gov. Patrick appointed Gibbs to serve on the Texas Interagency Data Transparency Commission and the Texas Council on Competitive Government.
