FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Senate President Robert Stivers has now hired two of former Gov. Ernie Fletcher's aides to serve on his leadership staff.

Earlier this month, David Fleenor came on board as Stivers' attorney. Fleenor, who had served as general counsel to Fletcher, replaced Harland Hatter, who took a position in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

On Wednesday, Stivers' office announced that Fletcher's former spokeswoman, Jodi Whitaker, had been hired as director of communications. Whitaker replaces Lourdes Baez, who has taken a position working on the Senate Education Committee staff.

Stivers took over as leader of the Senate in January, replacing longtime Senate President David Williams who resigned last year to accept a judicial appointment.
