Governor Mike Pence says he’s made no decisions yet who will run the Family and Social Services Administration or the Department of Child Services.  FSSA chief Michael Gargano and DCS director John Ryan — both appointed by Governor Mitch Daniels — attended Pence’s first cabinet meeting today.  But Pence says he has not decided whether the two men will stay on in his administration.

Pence indicated during his transition that he would look for the best candidates for each agency position, regardless of their connection to the Daniels administration.
