MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Gov. Robert Bentley’s state finance director, Marquita Davis, is leaving for a new job in Birmingham.

Bentley’s press secretary, Jennifer Ardis, said Davis has accepted a job as executive director of the Jefferson County Committee for Economic Opportunity. She will move to her new job after the current legislative session ends later this month.

Davis served as director of the state Department of Children’s Affairs in Gov. Bob Riley’s Cabinet and in Bentley’s Cabinet before he made her finance director in August 2011.
