MONTGOMERY, AL—Attorney General Luther Strange has named Mike Lewis to serve as communications director for the Alabama Attorney General’s Office.
“I am pleased to welcome Mike Lewis to my staff and believe his several decades of experience in handling communications for members of Alabama’s congressional delegation will enable him to effectively lead my communications team,” Attorney General Strange said.
Lewis is indeed a seasoned communications professional who has a history of working for congressmen to advance conservative ideals in Washington, DC He has held the position of press secretary for former Congressman Bill Dickinson and Congressman Terry Everett, both Republicans representing Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District. Lewis was also a communications director for Republican Congressman Jo Bonner of Alabama’s 1st Congressional District and served as speechwriter and senior policy adviser for Ohio Congressman Mike Turner.
Lewis’ record speaks for itself but he had this to say about coming back home to Alabama, “I’ve witnessed 26 years of history in our nation’s capital as a congressional aide, but I’ve always wanted to come back home to Alabama to lend my experience where needed. I am excited to be a part of the Alabama Attorney General’s office at a time when AG’s around the country are collectively holding the line against big government. You don’t have to be in Washington to take a stand or make a difference.”
Lewis is a native of Alexander City and graduated from Troy University.
