GOV. RILEY APPOINTS FORMER AG COMMISSIONER TO CABINET

January 29, 2003

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Gov. Bob Riley has appointed former Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bishop as labor commissioner. Bishop, a former state senator, served as agriculture commissioner from 1999 until Jan. 20.

Bishop said the appointment to the $76,000-a-year job of labor commissioner was not a swap for his endorsement.

"The governor owed me nothing," Bishop said at a news conference. "The governor and I did not discuss this until last Friday."

Bishop ran against former Gov. Don Siegelman for the Democratic nomination for governor, finishing a distant second. Afterward, he criticized the leadership of the Democratic Party for being out of touch with average Alabamians and endorsed Riley because he said the Republican was a man of integrity.

Riley said he wanted Bishop in his Cabinet because of the organizational skills he demonstrated as agriculture commissioner.

The Labor Department provides mediation services, conducts union representation elections, and files annual reports of unions in the state with at least 25 members.
