Governor Sanford Needs To Act On ESC Too!

February 19, 2009

Governor Sanford has asked for the resignation of 4 of the 7 commissioners that oversee the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs.

According to the Greenville News, Sanford’s decision came after “(a) critical audit of the agency… alleged diverted and mishandled funds, potential conflicts of interest, a lack of public transparency and a failure to adequately follow up on health and safety violations at the agency, among other issues.”

Seems like much of the same could be said of the state’s Employment Security Commission. The question is: when will Mark Sanford start swinging his executive axe on an agency that has failed to meet the needs of the unemployed in South Carolina?
