Aubrey Lane, a member of the Commonwealth Transportation Board, will be the newest member of governor-elect Terry McAuliffe’s team as his Secretary of Transportation. Layne’s addition to his team is another sign of the bipartisanship that he is aiming towards with his cabinet.
Layne has worked under Tim Kaine (governor in 2009) and Governor Bob McDonnell in 2010. Layne also became chair of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel Commission in 2012. McAuliffe’s cabinet is starting to fill up with officials who have proven themselves to effective in their past experiences.
Mark Bowles, executive vice president at McGuireWoods Consulting, Catherine Reynolds, chairwoman of the Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation; and Rusty Conner, managing partner at the DLA Piper law firm have also been added to McAuliffe’s cabinet this past week as finance co-chairmen.
McAuliffe’s team is quickly being built, as he gets ready to take office in January and succeed Governor Bob McDonnell.
