Oklahoma Governor-elect Kevin Stitt reappoints 2 Fallin picks

The Associated Press - December 15, 2018 9:36 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Governor-elect Kevin Stitt’s latest cabinet-level appointments are the first holdovers from the outgoing administration.
The Republican on Friday reappointed Maj. Gen. Michael Thompson as adjutant general of the Oklahoma National Guard and Rusty Rhoades as commissioner of public safety. Both are pending state Senate approval.
Stitt praised both men as committed to keeping Oklahomans safe.
Both Thompson and Rhoades were appointed to their current posts by term-limited Governor Mary Fallin in November 2017. The other six appointments Stitt has made will be new to the job.
Thompson commands both the Oklahoma Army and Air National Guards. Rhoades oversees agencies that include the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the state Office of Homeland Security.
Stitt will be inaugurated January 14th and will present his proposed budget to the Legislature in February.
