Linda Arey (1944- ) joined the White House Office of Public Liaison in April 1985, as the Office’s number two person under its new Director, Linda Chavez. Arey was a member of the Virginia State Bar who had held various positions in the Departments of Education, Justice, and Transportation during President Reagan’s first term. In the Reagan White House, she was responsible for general management of the entire Office of Public Liaison, and public liaison events involving the President or Vice President. She also directly administered the women’s portfolio, serving as the Administration’s conduit for women’s organizations and concerns.
After Chavez left the White House in May 1986, Arey remained as Deputy Director for Public Liaison under two more Directors, Mari Maseng (May 1986-June 1987) and Rebecca Range. In late 1987, she resigned her position for what turned out to be an unsuccessful run for a Congressional seat in Virginia.
