BATON ROUGE - Gov. John Bel Edwards is keeping his predecessor's picks to lead Louisiana's juvenile corrections office and the state's financial regulatory agency.

The governor announced Wednesday he is reappointing Mary Livers as deputy secretary for the Office of Juvenile Justice and John Ducrest as commissioner of the Office of Financial Institutions.

Livers was appointed to the position in October 2008 by former Gov. Bobby Jindal after working in three other states' corrections agencies. The Office of Juvenile Justice manages juvenile incarceration and prevention and diversion programs for at-risk youth.

Ducrest has been in his job for more than a decade for two previous governors, Kathleen Blanco and Jindal. Blanco named him commissioner in June 2004. The Office of Financial Institutions regulates many of the businesses that provide financial services in Louisiana.
