Bauer Names Thrower Chief of Staff

Lt. Governor André Bauer has named Helen Ann S. Thrower, a Columbia attorney and veteran legislative advisor, as his Chief of Staff.

“Helen Ann Thrower brings a wealth of experience and valuable knowledge,” said Lt. Governor Bauer. “She has served as an assistant clerk for the House of Representatives; as legal counsel for the Legislative Ethics Committee; the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism; the SC Medical Association; and the Labor, Commerce and Industry Committee.”

She succeeds former Secretary of State Jim Miles, who is returning to the private sector after serving as chief of staff since April 2008.

Bauer, the country’s youngest lieutenant governor, directs the Lt. Governor’s Office on Aging. He recently received the SC Republican Party’s Terry Haskins Award for Legislative Leadership, the 2009 “Friend of the Taxpayer” award from the SC Association of Taxpayers, and the Dorothy Blackwell Leadership Award from the Senior Citizens Association on Florence County. He also received the 2008 Regional Impact Award from the eight-state Southeastern Association of Area Agencies on Aging for being a forceful and effective advocate for the elderly. He was saluted for initiating public policy changes that have expanded senior protection programs and innovative home and community based programs. His incentive for attracting geriatricians, which has made awards to 16 physicians in four years, is a national model.
