Select other roles as custom post authors


I created a custom post type (“Organization”), and I’ve also created a custom user role (“Representative”). Also, I’ve ensured that the Representative role has read/edit/create/publish post capabilities.

I then, programmatically, assigned a Representative as the “author” of the Organization.

When I am on the Organizations overview screen (WP Admin > Organizations), I see the proper representative in the “Author” column.

However, when editing the Organization, the “Author” dropdown only shows Admin/Editor/Contributors. It does not allow me to view/select Representatives as the author of an organization.

I’ve searched and cannot find the answer. Am I doing this wrong, or is there a way to hook into WP and have it recognize other roles?
