LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Governor-elect Mike Beebe, who will be sworn in next week, has picked five more members of his administration.

Beebe announced today the following appointments: Lamar Davis, deputy chief of staff for the governor's office; Philip Hood, chief executive officer of the Arkansas Workers' Compensation Commission; Darryl Little, director of the Arkansas State Plant Board; John Shannon, director of the Arkansas Forestry Commission; and Collette Honorable, director of the Arkansas Workforce Investment Board.

Davis will work with chief of staff Morril Harriman in the governor's office. Davis previously served on Beebe's election campaign and as assistant attorney general.

On the Workforce Investment Board, Honorable will replace Sandra Winston, whom Beebe decided not to retain. Honorable has served as assistant attorney general.

Hood will replace Alan McClain as head of the Workers Compensation Commission. Hood now is a member of the Workforce Investment Board.

Both Little and Shannon served under outgoing Governor Mike Huckabee's administration. Little has served as director of the plant board since 2002, while Shannon has led the forestry commission for a dozen years.
