The Governor also nominated Justin Chavez for the Audit Director, and Russell Read (Harris County, Texas), Ken Lay (Converse), Doug Dillard (Teton), and Cecilia Herbert (Teton) were nominated for the Investment Fund Committee.

Note that per state statute, the Investment Funds Committee nominees are appointed by a selection panel and not the Governor. In addition, the Department of Audit director nominee is named by a majority of the Governor, Secretary of State and State Treasurer. All other nominees are appointed solely by the Governor.
