Gov. Haslam taps newest ABC Commissioner


Category: abc, Alcoholic Beverage Commission, Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission, Ashleigh Harb Roberts


This week's Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission meeting featured a new face up front. 

Ashleigh Harb Roberts is the new Commissioner for the Middle District of Tennessee.  Commissioner Roberts replaces Commissioner Kaegi, who resigned in December 2017 and we blogged about on Last Call

Commissioner Roberts joins Commission Chair Richard Skiles, who we blogged about here and long-term Commissioner John Jones, East Tennessee Commission Member.  The Commissioners are appointed by the Governor and meet on a monthly basis to conduct ABC business.

Commissioner Roberts is a lawyer, having served as deputy legal counsel to Gov. Haslam.  She is a Vanderbilt Law grad, a self-described fan of red wine and a mother to five young children, including quadruplets.  Married to Gabe Roberts, chief legal officer of the Tennessee Division of Finance and Administration’s Bureau of TennCare, both were recognized as members of the 40 Under 40 class in 2016 by the Nashville Business Journal.

Reminds us of Beyoncé’s Run the World:

Girls we run this motha, girls

Who run the world?


This goes out to all my girls

That's in the club rocking the latest

Who will buy it for themselves

And get more money later
