PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gov. Gina Raimondo plans to nominate the state’s outgoing director of labor and training to lead the elderly affairs division.

Raimondo announced Monday she’ll ask the Senate to confirm Charles Fogarty. Fogarty was the director of the state’s Department of Labor and Training for the past four years. Raimondo said last month that she would nominate a labor official in Maryland to be the state’s director of labor and training, Scott Jensen.

Fogarty previously served as the lieutenant governor of Rhode Island and as a state senator.

Raimondo says Fogarty has shown a commitment to the state’s senior citizens and she values his expertise leading a state agency.
