ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov.-elect Larry Hogan nominated four more cabinet members Thursday, bringing a former Democratic lawmaker as well as a former Republican primary opponent into his fold.

Hogan selected David Craig to run the Maryland Department of Planning. Craig came in second to Hogan in the GOP primary. He was the county executive of Harford County from July 2005 to December 2014, and has served as a state delegate and senator as well as mayor of his hometown, Havre de Grace.

Former Democratic state Sen. Rona Kramer, who represented Montgomery County, was named to run the Department of Aging. She is a small business owner and senior vice president and general counsel at Kramer Enterprises, a commercial real estate company.

Hogan chose Kenneth Holt to be secretary of the Department of Housing and Community Development. Holt also served in the House, representing Baltimore and Harford Counties, and founded a software engineering firm. He also owns and operates a farm where he breeds thoroughbred racehorses.

Hogan picked investment banker R. Michael Gill as his Business and Economic Development secretary. Gill is chairman and principal of Evergreen Advisors, founded the Baltimore-based technical services company Americom, and has served on the Board of Regents for the University System of Maryland and the Baltimore County Economic Development Commission.

The nominees will require Senate confirmation. Hogan said he’ll announce remaining positions such as budget secretary and transportation secretary next week. His term begins Jan. 21.
