OKLAHOMA CITY – Senate Health and Human Services Chair Paul Rosino, R-Oklahoma City, issued the following statement on Tuesday thanking Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) Director Justin Brown for his service.  After leading the agency for three years, Brown announced he would be stepping down as director – his last day will be Aug. 19.

“I want to express my sincere thanks to Justin Brown for his outstanding leadership as director of DHS. I was proud to work shoulder to shoulder with Justin on numerous key issues impacting the lives of countless Oklahomans.  Of those, the work to finally eliminate Oklahoma’s 13-year waiting list for disabilities services is certainly one of the greatest accomplishments. The progress in the Pinnacle Plan to improve our foster care system and his efforts to modernize the structure of the agency will benefit our citizens for years to come. 

“I’m also very pleased that Samantha Galloway, chief of staff and operations for DHS, will step in as interim director upon Justin’s departure.  Samantha has been an integral part of these and many other key projects to transform DHS and the services it provides, and I look forward to working with her and with Justin in his continuing role as cabinet secretary of human services.”
