An aide to Democratic Lt. Gov. Richard J. Davis says Gov. Charles S. Robb is considering her for the job of secretary of the state Board of Elections.
"All I can do this morning is confirm that my name is in the pot," Eva Teig said.
Teig, 38, a $31,000-a-year executive assistant to Davis, is among at least four women mentioned as being under consideration for the job. The post is held by Joan Mahan, a Republican appointee from Fairfax County who will resign Jan. 31 to become executive secretary for the Virginia Bar Association.
Other candidates under consideration include Susan Fitzhugh, a deputy to Senate Clerk J.T. Shropshire; Louise Cunningham, a Lynchburg Democrat also active in the Davis Senate campaign; and Sandy Bowen, a Richmond Democrat.
George Stoddard, the governor's spokesman, would not comment on the selection process and said he could not give an indication of when Robb would decide.
Although Robb is considered certain to name a Democrat to the position, Virginia Republican Party chairman, Dr. Alfred Cramer III, has recommended four candidates. In a letter to the governor, Cramer recommended Mahan; William Hurd, a lawyer from Southwest Virginia, Wayne Lustig, a Norfolk lawyer who was election board chairman under the Dalton administration; and Eve Newman, who was general registrar of Fairfax County for three years.
