North Dakota Governor-elect Doug Burgum is keeping most of Gov. Dalrymple’s cabinet positions.

Burgum takes office on Thursday.

He says he will retain 11 people who head un-elected agency posts.

He is currently searching to fill several cabinet positions, including the head of Human Services, which is the state’s biggest agency.

He is also looking for a commerce commissioner, chief information officer, and parks and recreation director.

Burgum has yet to name a chief of staff.
