OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has filled two positions in his executive cabinet, including Chip Keating as secretary of public safety and Brian Brurud as secretary of veterans affairs and the military.

Stitt, a Republican who was sworn in last month, made the appointments Thursday. Both Keating and Brurud will serve as unpaid members of Stitt’s cabinet. Both positions require Senate confirmation.

Keating, the son of former GOP Gov. Frank Keating, served as an Oklahoma state trooper between 2001 and 2004 and is a director of the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Retirement System. He is a principal with an Oklahoma City-based real estate and oil and gas investment company.

Brurud served 21 years as a Navy and National Guard fighter pilot and is CEO of a global performance leadership consulting firm.
