Cantrell, Hare join McDonnell's administration

Anita Kumar

We hear from sources that a pair of familar faces have joined Gov. Bob McDonnell's administration as deputy secretaries.

Carrie Cantrell, who worked for Republicans George Allen and Jerry Kilgore, is now working for Commerce and Trade Secretary Jim Cheng. She most recently was employed by the Republican State Leadership Committee, a Washington group that helps elect GOP legislators nationwide.

Keith Hare, a lobbyist for Medical Society of Virginia, was named deputy secretary of Health and Human Resources, working for Secretary Bill Hazel.

McDonnell's office has not officially released these appointments for some reason -- even though we hear Cantrell and Hare have been on the job since last week.

Have you heard about any other assistant or deputy secretary appointments that the McDonnell administration has yet to announce? Email me at

Oh here it is - what grand conspiracy could there be re: no announcements? How about it's middle of session, and the good folks in the new McDonnell administration have their priorities straight.

Here we go again. More Richmonders; the same old Allen-Gilmore leftovers. I love how they are trying to claim they have a regionally diverse cabinet. They're using two Southsiders who have lived in Richmond for many years as their token outsiders. HAHA.
