Sailor, who is African American, will serve in Youngkin’s Cabinet and work with agency secretaries on the goals Youngkin laid out in his executive order. A new state law that went into effect last summer also tasks the office with overseeing the roll out of diversity, equity and inclusion plans at the state’s agencies.
Sailor worked in the White House Office of Public Liaison under President George W. Bush, after serving as the director of African American Affairs for Bush’s presidential campaign. Sailor was also the deputy chief of staff for former U.S. Education Secretary Rod Paige. She also worked for the Republican National Committee on building coalitions.
No small wonder why Virginia Democrats have been slamming Youngkin on the
DEI DOI position.
One small hint? Sailor’s links with the Heritage Foundation indicate the influence of one Kay Coles James — the present Secretary of the Commonwealth and all around great American.
Either way, if the word opportunity strikes fear into the progressive legions? Let’s hear more about it.
