Lynn Budd is currently the head of the department’s security division. Leland Christensen ran unsuccessfully in the Republican primary for state treasurer last year after serving in the state senate for seven years.  The governor said Budd and Christensen are a great pairing to head the agency.

Gordon also confirmed that Tom Forslund will step down as director of the Wyoming Department of Health.

Ceballos was the Democratic nominee for state superintendent for public instruction in 2014 and formerly was Wyoming director of Qwest Communications. The governor said a transition team in place to make sure the change at the Health Department goes smoothly.
