    President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday said he intends to appoint West Michigan GOP mega donor and philanthropist Betsy DeVos to be his education secretary, putting an ardent supporter of school choice in charge of the nation’s education policy.
    DeVos, 58, is seen as a national leader in the school choice movement, which she has called an attempt to “empower” parents to find good schools for their children, whether they be traditional public schools in other neighborhoods, charter schools, virtual schools or private institutions.

    You're not mistaken. The article I read says her husband is the former president of the company and an heir (son of co-founder Richard DeVos).

    Secretary of Housing & Urban Development:

    http://www.wsj.com/articles/ben-cars...oon-1479922776

    President-elect Donald Trump has selected former GOP presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson as the head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, a spokesman for Mr. Carson said.

    The spokesman, Armstrong Williams, said Mr. Carson was offered the HUD secretary post and has accepted it.
    Edit: Looks like a final decision regarding this position is still pending.

    I can't understand why he would turn down Surgeon General for being unqualified, but he would accept HUD. For that matter, I don't understand how he thought he would learn to be President by OJT, if he couldn't learn a position traditionally held by a doctor...

    President-elect Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he will nominate Georgia Rep. Tom Price to head the Department of Health and Human Services.

    The Cabinet-level pick, which requires Senate confirmation, inserts one of Obamacare's most outspoken critics into the key position to dismantle it and help Republicans implement their own blueprint for health care reform.

    Re: President Trump's Team

    Interesting political move if it turns out to be true:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/29/us...ion-trump.html

    WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Elaine L. Chao, the former labor secretary under George W. Bush, to head the Department of Transportation, elevating someone who has been a fixture of the Republican establishment in Washington to a post that could become integral to shaping one of the most ambitious parts of Mr. Trump’s agenda.

    Trivia:

    Chao would be the second woman to have been labor secretary, transportation secretary and married to the senate majority leader (first was Elizabeth Dole). The new political hat trick?

    Expected nominee for Treasury Secretary:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/29/us...tary.html?_r=0

    WASHINGTON — Steven Mnuchin, a financier with deep roots on Wall Street and in Hollywood but no government experience, is expected to be named Donald J. Trump’s Treasury secretary as soon as Wednesday, people close to the transition say.

    Mr. Mnuchin, 53, was the national finance chairman for Mr. Trump’s campaign, and his selection would elevate a wealthy loyalist to a pivotal economic post. He began his career at
    Goldman Sachs, where he became a partner, before creating his own hedge fund, moving to the West Coast and entering the first rank of movie financiers by bankrolling hits like the “X-Men” franchise and “Avatar.”

    Steven Mnuchin is ruthless, would be interesting to see what he would do as Treasury Secretary.
