Sandoval Opts for Competent Status Quo

Gov.-elect Sandoval continued his “March of Competence” today by filling out the rest of his administration with appointments of, as his press release puts it, four “veteran administrators” to key posts: Greg Cox at Corrections, Dr. Michael Fischer at Cultural Affairs, David Gustafson at Information Technology, and Chris Perry at Public Safety.

As Newt says, real change requires real change. Considering Nevada’s housing and unemployment problems, I’d say we could use some real change. But if personnel is policy – and it is – the Sandoval administration, highly competent as it may be, will appear to be an agent for the status quo, not an agent of change.
