Secretary of State - State Board Terms
We are reviewing the statewide process for managing and appointing members to state boards, commissions, councils, and committees (collectively referred to as “boards”) to address concerns regarding expired terms and vacancies, recruitment, and accuracy of board information.
We are reviewing concerns about agency organization and structure, service delivery and contracts with providers, employment policies and practices, compliance with state and federal laws and regulations, and use of best practices.
We are evaluating the agency’s response to the opioid crisis, its efforts to address alcohol and substance abuse cases in the wake of COVID-19, and other issues related to addiction services and administration.
We are reviewing Personnel Services and Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to address concerns about changes to the agency’s workplace culture by way of training staff. In addition, we will review potential related impacts on employee hiring, promotion, and retention practices, to evaluate compliance with State and Federal nondiscrimination and equal opportunity laws.
We are reviewing the State’s overall process for handling elections to address concerns regarding, among other things, maintenance of voter registration records, the process for conducting training for election officials, and the processing of ballots.
