The Colorado Department of Human Services has named Sarah Sills as the new Director of Budget and Policy.
Sills is currently the CDHS Legislative Liaison and has served in that position since joining the department in August 2012. She will remain in her role as Legislative Liaison through the end of the current legislative session and will begin the new duties on May 8.
Before joining CDHS, Sills was the Government and Community Relations Manager at Denver Health and Hospital Authority. She served under former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Jr., as Management and Budget Analyst in the Office of State Planning and Budgeting.
Sills received her Bachelor of Science from Colorado State University and a double Master’s in Public Administration and Technical Communications from the University of Colorado at Denver.
Until Sills assumes her new position, Clint Woodruff, director for the Division of Financial Services, will continue to serve as acting budget director.
CDHS will begin recruitment for a new legislative liaison after the General Assembly adjourns.
