Virginia Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe’s first cabinet appointment was his deputy campaign manager and a former GreenTech Automotive executive Levar Stoney.
McAuliffe announced Monday that Stoney will be secretary of the commonwealth.
Before joining McAuliffe’s campaign, Stoney served as director of public and government affairs for GreenTech, McAuliffe’s scandal-tainted electric car company, for nearly three years.
GreenTech is currently under multiple federal investigations regarding its improper use of a foreign investor visa program. The company has also failed to meet multiple job promises and production estimates.
