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
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…
