Here's a rundown of the day's transactions in state government:
- Rob Hofmann replaces Cynthia LaWare as secretary of the Agency of Human Services. LaWare might stay in state government.
- Jason Gibbs, the governor's spokesman for the last six years, replaces Jonathan Wood as commissioner of Forests, Parks and Recreation. Wood was named last week as secretary of the Agency of Natural Resources.
- Gibbs' replacement as the voice of the governor is "TBD," he says. One would have guessed it would be Dennise Casey, most recently the governor's campaign manager but when not in campaign season a gubernatorial staffer. However, Gibbs says Casey "will be promoted to a different position on the senior staff."
All told, what do you make of the changes?
