It's Okay. Not Okay.

The nomination of Jeff Rose to be next DRED Commissioner sails through the Executive Council with a 5-0 vote.

Think flat waters of the Mediterranean.

This certainly bodes well for independence and process, and even better for out of the box thinking and ideas.

Is the Executive Council actually an elected voice of the people or an appendage of the Office of Governor?  Another name for the Executive Council is actually the Governor’s Council.  I’ve looked at old campaign photographs from the Walter Peterson era and believe it or not Governor’s Council was actually the term that was used in everything from official state communications to the political campaigns.

They should return to that.
