OKLAHOMA CITY -- Republican Gov. Mary Fallin has tapped the head of her inaugural committee and a longtime public policy analyst to serve as the director of the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department.

Fallin announced Tuesday that Deby Snodgrass will take over the state agency from Hardy Watkins, who is resigning this month.

Snodgrass most recently served as senior director of public affairs for Chesapeake Energy. She also was a founding partner of the public policy and research firm Cole Hargrave Snodgrass and Associates.

Snodgrass served as chairwoman of Fallin's inaugural committee and previously served as executive director of the inaugurations of former Gov. Frank Keating.
