Former Kaine aide to run D.C. Health Care Finance Agency

By Washington Post Editors

Anita Kumar and Mike DeBonis report on the Virginia Politics blog that Wayne Turnage, former chief of staff to then-Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D), will be named head of the D.C. Health Care Finance Agency, according to sources close to Kaine and D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray (D).

A news conference to announce his appointment and other posts is scheduled for Friday.

Turnage has served as chief of staff to VCU President Michael Rao since January 2010, when Kaine left the governor's mansion to become full-time chairman of the Democratic National Committee. In November, Rao announced that Turnage's job would be eliminated Jan. 31.

Turnage replaces Julie Hudman, who announced her departure last month after more than two years as the department's first director. Several of Hudman's senior deputies have also left, leading to wide concerns about the management of the agency in the face of a city budget shortfall.

You fill this position before the Director of the Department of Health. This guy was facing unemployment, much like our new Attorney General (Peter Nickles II). Gray is picking up everyone elses left overs.

His transition team is THE WORST. Or perhaps just the lady running the group. She listens to NOBODY but that delusional diva voice in her head.
