Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich this week named former budget official Bob Greenlee to fill the position of deputy governor being vacated by Sheila Nix after four years.
“Sheila Nix is one of the most dedicated and capable people I know. I want to thank her for all her hard work over the years and for helping steer important initiatives like expanding health care for Illinoisans and providing all seniors in Illinois with free public transportation,” the governor said in a statement. “I look forward to working with Bob Greenlee. I know he has the expertise and commitment to the public to help us keep Illinois heading in the right direction.”
