In Virginia, Government Workers Are Getting Job-Search Help (From Their Current Employer)

Virginia is the only state in the nation where the governor is limited to one four-year term. Of course there are advantages to this: For one, it eliminates the distraction of running for re-election. On the other hand, the 250 or so at-will political appointees in the state find themselves in a tricky position.

By definition, these at-will employees can be let go the second a new governor is sworn in — as long as discrimination is not a factor. They not only include cabinet members but also high-level staffers for departments like budget, commerce, election administration, environmental protection and so on.
