Last Thursday, Terry McAuliffe (D) announced he has chosen two government administration veterans to fill positions in his cabinet, according to the Washington Post.
McAuliffe named Nancy Rodrigues, former secretary of the state board of elections, as secretary of administration. He also named Karen Jackson as secretary of technology.
Both women have strong experience serving both Republican and Democrat leaders, furthering McAuliffe’s desire to reach across the aisle to make Virginia work.
“Nancy and Karen, like my other cabinet appointments, are leaders who will put partisan battles aside to do what is best for Virginia’s businesses and economy,” McAuliffe said in a statement. “They have served governors both Democratic and Republican, and have dedicated their careers to making Virginia a better place to live, work, and raise a family.”
