The retired Air Force general chosen by Governor Mark Sanford to run the newly named Department of Employment and Workforce has been on the job for a couple of days now. Sanford toured the offices with John Finan Monday afternoon.
The agency formerly called the Employment Security Commission is now a part of the governor’s Cabinet.
Sanford noted that Finan, in his previous position, controlled the entire Air Force budget. The governor said this is only the beginning of big change at the agency.

The governor said even on his short tour, the first time he had been to the agency, he saw areas that could be improved.
