RICHMOND (AP) -- Democratic Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe has reappointed the state secretary of agriculture and forestry and named a new natural resources chief.

McAuliffe named former Hampton Mayor Molly Joseph Ward secretary of natural resources. She stepped down as mayor last September to take a job at the White House.
 
McAuliffe said Thursday that Todd Haymore is staying on as agriculture secretary. He's the third holdover from Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell's Cabinet. Haymore previously served as commissioner of the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services during Democrat Tim Kaine's administration.
 
The governor-elect has three more Cabinet positions to fill before his inauguration Jan. 11.
