Gov. Rick Perry has named Mary Anne Wiley General Counsel for the Office of the Governor. Wiley has served as deputy general counsel and director of criminal justice policy for the office since 2001. She replaces David Morales, who has accepted a position outside the Governor's Office.

Before joining Gov. Perry's staff, Wiley served as criminal justice policy advisor to then-Lt. Gov. Perry, and held the same position on Lt. Gov. Bob Bullock's staff. She has also served as director of criminal investigation divisions for both the Texas Railroad Commission and the Office of the Comptroller. She was previously head of the Business Law Department in the Texas Tech University School of Business, as well as an adjunct professor at the Texas Tech University School of Law.
