SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque lawyer has been named by Gov. Susana Martinez to a board that handles appeals of personnel cases involving state workers.

Megan Muirhead was appointed to the five-member State Personnel Board, which hears appeals by workers when they are fired or demoted by state agencies.

Several years ago when the state faced budget shortfalls, it was the responsibility of Personnel Board members to decide whether to approve plans by government administrators for furloughs and employee layoffs.

Muirhead earned a law degree from the University of Michigan in 1996, and she received a bachelor’s degree in political science from the same university in 1993.

Muirhead’s appointment is subject to confirmation by the state Senate.
