Gov. Charles W. Turnbull completed his Cabinet nominations Monday with the choice of Sonia Jacobs Dow of St. Croix to be Labor commissioner.
In addition to sending her name to the Legislature for confirmation, Turnbull named Dow acting commissioner. His release did not say when that appointment takes effect.
