McAuliffe appoints to lawmakers to boards

RICHMOND, Va. — Gov. Terry McAuliffe is appointing two recently resigned Democratic lawmakers to state boards.

The governor announced Tuesday that he is appointing Sen. Henry Marsh to be a commissioner of the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and Del. Algie T. Howell, Jr. to be vice chairman of state’s parole board.

Both Marsh and Howell recently announced their resignations.

A spot on the ABC board is widely viewed as one of the more cushy political appointments available for governors to make.

One of McAuliffe’s early picks for the board was rejected by the General Assembly earlier this year. Republicans blocked the appointment of GOP operative Boyd Marcus, who shocked political class last year by endorsing McAuliffe and was paid $140,000 as a campaign adviser.
