OUR FOCUS TURNS TO “THE COUNCIL”

WHO ARE THE MEMBERS OF THE DEFERRED COMPENSATION COMMITTEE?

First of all, it is not very clear who the active members of the Committee are.  I have not been able to find who actually served.

(a) There shall be established a Deferred Compensation Council for public employees of the State which shall consist of 7 members, as follows:

(1) The Secretary of Finance, State Treasurer, Director of the Office of Management and Budget and the State Insurance Commissioner or their designees shall serve ex-officio as members.

SO WE HAVE…

Jack Markell- Governor

Brian Maxwell-Office of Management and Budget

Karen Weldin Stewart-Insurance Commissioner

Ken Simpler-State Treasurer

Thomas J. Cook-Secretary of Finance

60 Del. Laws, c. 146, § 1; 72 Del. Laws, c. 488, § 1.;

The seven member council is supposed to have 3 other members…

(2) Two shall be state employees appointed by the Governor.

(3) One shall be a representative of the public-at-large appointed by the Governor.

HERE IS THE ISSUE…

I have been informed that THERE WAS A VACANT SEAT!!  There was only ONE State Employee present at the Committee meeting.  I was also told that the second State Employee Vacant Seat has been vacant for some time.  When there is a vacancy …

(5) In the case of vacancy on the Council for any reason other than expiration of the term of office, the Governor shall fill such a vacancy for the unexpired term.

Why did Governor Jack Markell not Fill the vacant State Employee seat.  Delaware teachers never had a chance!  We never had a voice!  We never had any input!

THIS PROCESS NEEDS TO SLOW DOWN AND BE RE-EVALUATED!!!!

Please continue to contact your representatives…
