Tony Evers to announce more cabinet secretaries

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers is planning to announce more cabinet appointments.

Evers has scheduled a noon news conference in Madison to announce his latest round of appointments.

The governor-elect appointed his first cabinet members last week, including Craig Thompson as transportation secretary, Preston Cole as Department of Natural Resources secretary and Kevin Carr as Department of Corrections secretary.

On Thursday he announced he will appoint Carolyn Stanford Taylor to succeed him as state schools superintendent after he’s sworn in as governor on Jan. 7. Stanford Taylor currently serves as assistant state schools superintendent. She will become the state’s first black schools superintendent.
