Pence chief adviser resigns to start firm

Gov. Mike Pence accepted the resignation Wednesday of his chief of staff and long-time adviser, Bill Smith.

Smith is leaving the administration to form a public affairs and strategic communications firm, which is anticipated to work with Pence’s campaign and other clients.

“Bill Smith’s contributions since the outset of our administration have been incalculable and I will always be grateful for his tireless service to the state of Indiana. His integrity and strong leadership as director of our transition team and then as my chief of staff contributed significantly to our success. Bill Smith made a difference for the people of Indiana,” Pence said. Smith has worked for Pence since 2000. He was chief of staff in then-Congressman Pence’s office in Washington and as senior adviser for the 2012 gubernatorial campaign.
