BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov.-elect Doug Burgum says he’s keeping most of North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s Cabinet positions.

Burgum announced Monday that he will retain 11 people who head unelected agency posts. Burgum takes office on Thursday.

He is currently searching to fill several Cabinet positions, including North Dakota’s health officer and the head of Human Services, which is the state’s biggest agency. Maggie Anderson, the current director, is taking another job within the agency.

Burgum also is looking to fill Cabinet posts that include commerce commissioner, chief information officer, and parks and recreation director.

Burgum also has yet to name a chief of staff.
