Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne of Baton Rouge will be Edwards’ Commissioner of Administration.
This makes him chief of the efforts to fix Louisiana’s money problems. He gave up the lieutenant governor’s post to run for governor.
Kimberly Lewis Robinson, a Baton Rouge attorney, will be appointed Secretary of the Revenue department.
Edwards is using LSU facilities for his transition work, as have previous governors.
