More Spitzer Appointment(s) UPDATED!!!!!!

Extra!!! Extra!!! READ ALL ABOUT IT!!!!! Liz Benjamin(Capitol Confidential) gets the jump on another Spitzer Appointment.............."The New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services just put out a press release welcoming Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s new Mental Health commissioner, Dr. Michael Hogan.
NYAPRS lauded Hogan, who is Ohio’s mental health commissioner and has also held that post in Connecticut, and was also
tapped by President Bush to serve as chair of the New Freedom Mental Health Commission, which was charged with conducting a comprehensive study of the public and private system of delivering mental health services nationwide.
I think this is Spitzer’s first appointment of an official from outside New York, which means he’s starting to live up to that “national search” pledge."
and The Poughkeepsie Journal reveals Horse boarder named farm commissioner "Gov. Eliot Spitzer has appointed Patrick Hooker as the new state agriculture commissioner. Hooker is currently Director of Public Policy at New York Farm Bureau.Hooker has served as the public policy director at New York Farm Bureau since 1999.
