RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Terry McAuliffe has chosen not to reappoint two newly elected top-ranking officials to Virginia Commonwealth University’s leadership board.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1KLZaga ) reports that rector-elect William Royall Jr. and vice rector-elect Thomas Farrell II had been picked by the Board of Visitors to lead VCU’s board starting July 1, but McAuliffe chose not to have them return for second terms. Their four-year terms expire June 30.

McAuliffe spokesman Brian Coy declined to offer a reason for the decision, except to say that it is the governor’s prerogative to make the selections.

The Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth says that Farrell, the chairman of Dominion, had asked not to be reappointed because of conflicts with his schedule.

Neither Royall nor Farrell returned the newspaper’s phone calls seeking comment.
