PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Gov. Gina Raimondo says she's nominating five people to serve on the state Board of Education.

Raimondo announced Thursday that she will ask the Senate to confirm her choices.

Eva-Marie Mancuso is the current chairwoman.

Raimondo's pick for chairwoman is Barbara Cottam. Cottam is the executive vice president for Citizens Financial Group. She is a founding member of the child advocacy organization Rhode Island Kids Count.

Raimondo also nominated Jim Karam, Marta V. Martínez and Betsy Shimberg, and re-nominated current member, the Rev. Jeffery Williams.

Raimondo thanked Mancuso and the other outgoing members for their public service.
