Gov. Quinn Appoints Short Term Comptroller
UPDATED: 6:11 PM EST
CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois' governor-elect says outgoing Gov. Pat Quinn's appointment of his budget chief as a short-term replacement for late Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka is appropriate.
   Republican Bruce Rauner released a statement Friday after Quinn named budget director Jerry Stermer to the post.  Stermer was Quinn's chief of staff during his first term.
   Rauner had called on Quinn to name Topinka's longtime chief of staff Nancy Kimme as her replacement. But Quinn says that Kimme now plans to stay in her current role.
   Stermer will serve until Rauner takes office on Jan. 12, when the new governor will announce a full four-year replacement.
   Rauner says appointing a "temporary placeholder" and keeping Topinka's staff in place "is an appropriate decision" that ensures continuity of services for the people of the state.
