Riley appoints parole board member

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley has appointed Cliff Walker of Bessemer to a seat on the state parole board.

Riley announced his choice Tuesday for the position, which pays $91,000 a year. Walker was one of three people recommended for the
post by the five members of the parole board's nominating committee.

Two committee members - House Speaker Seth Hammett and Criminal
Appeals Court Judge Kelli Wise - recommended Walker, who serves as
the state's Small Business Advocate.

Riley previously appointed Walker to a temporary state parole board that served from 2003 to 2006 alongside the regular parole board.

Walker will be filling a vacancy when VeLinda Weatherly's term
ends July 1.
