Alaska Gov.-elect Mike Dunleavy on Nov. 16 announced the appointment of Tamika Ledbetter as his commissioner of the state's Department of Labor and Workforce Development, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

Ledbetter is currently a regional manager for the department's Anchorage and Matanuska Susitna Valley region.
