McDonnell's last two Cabinet members are sworn in

Anita Kumar

Eight days after his inauguration, Gov. Bob McDonnell has a complete Cabinet.

Janet Polarek (secretary of the commonwealth) and Terri Suit (assistant to the governor for commonwealth preparedness) were sworn in at a packed ceremony at the state Capitol shortly after noon today. Former attorney general Bill Mims spoke at the ceremony.

"It's an exciting day,'' McDonnell told the hundreds of guests seated on the House floor and in the upstairs gallery. "Today we double the number of women in the Cabinet."

Last Sunday, all other members of the Cabinet were sworn in.

Virginia law calls for these two Cabinet members to wait a week. That means former Gov. Tim Kaine's appointees Kate Hanley (secretary of the commonwealth) and Bob Crouch (assistant to the governor for commonwealth preparedness) had been working a week after his departure.

All members of the Cabinet still need to be confirmed by the General Assembly.

.....I guess I'm confused.....when the POST was working for the Deeds campaign didn't they say that McDonnell hated woman?

That he thought that woman should be in the home only?

......hummm apparently the POST was lying and misleading the American people, again.......

How exciting! More Pat Robertson Republicans. We'll go far especially with his appointment of Thelma Drake. Lot's of privitization transportation issues resolved.

allenridge. I think YOU'RE misleading people with your horrible usage of the English language. The plural of "woman" is "women."
