Gov.-elect Susana Martinez today will name her choice to head the Department of Finance and Administration. She will do this at the Capitol this afternoon.
It goes without saying that whoever the nominee is, he or she has some serious work ahead, given the latest news on how big the state's budget really is. He or she also has a workload and a half sorting through any recent hires, exempts who have moved to classified posts and people who recently have gotten raises. That's just one area, of course, that the Martinez team will be looking at come Jan. 1.
