Governor Ernie Fletcher made several university appointments today -- including naming a former member of his cabinet to the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees.
Fletcher's former Personnel Cabinet secretary, Erwin Roberts, was named to the U-K board along with Sandy Patterson, a Fort Thomas businesswoman.
Fletcher also named Lexington businessman William Craig Turner to the Eastern Kentucky University board of regents; Bowling Green business owner James Gale Meyer to Western Kentucky University's board; and Rowan County banker Paul Goodpaster to the Morehead State University board of regents.
Goodpaster supported Fletcher's Democratic opponent, Ben Chandler, in the 2003 gubernatorial election, according to state campaign finance records. He gave about 800 dollars to Chandler's campaign.
Turner, Meyer, Patterson and Roberts have each donated to Fletcher's gubernatorial campaigns.
