Virginia names deputy secretary of technology

Bette Dillehay, Virginia's authority for dealing with the Year 2000 rollover,

on Wednesday was named the commonwealth's deputy secretary of technology

by Gov. James Gilmore.

"As director of the Century Date Change Initiative, Bette's leadership was

instrumental to the commonwealth's smooth transition into the 21st century,"

Gilmore said in a release. "In her new role, I am confident she will continue

to foster the commonwealth's high-tech initiatives."
