CHICAGO — Moving to reshape the state’s budget office after eight months in office, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn appointed his senior fiscal adviser David Vaught to the state’s top fiscal post this week amid dire warnings from the comptroller that Illinois faces a cash-flow crisis with $3 billion in unpaid bills.
Vaught will replace Ginger Ostro as director of the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget. She worked in the GOMB for six years before former Gov. Rod Blagojevich appointed her director in 2007.
