Virginia Governor-elect Bob McDonnell is making the state's lieutenant governor part of his cabinet. McDonnell is appointing Bill Bolling the job czar in his administration.
The Republican who will soon take-over in Richmond also appointed retired Fortune 500 CEO Bob Sledd as commerce secretary, and longtime aide Janet Polarek Secretary of the Commonwealth.
Although Bolling will have an additional title, it won't mean a raise in his $36,321 state salary. The appointment puts the lieutenant governor and former Performance Food Group chairman Sledd in charge of the McDonnell primary campaign theme of creating new jobs in Virginia.
