THE CARROLL COX SHOW : 1080 AM
SUNDAY, MARCH 28, 2010
Lyla B. Berg, Representative for the18th District and candidate for Lt. Governor, is back to talk about politics and leadership in government agencies.
Carroll brings us up to date on issues regarding DLNR Chair Laura Thielen's practices in hiring Commander Mark Young and the firing Dr. Polhemus(DAR). Also under discussion are the major problems at DLNR's Historic Preservation Division and it's the failed audit by the National Park Service after several years of warnings (Document attached).
Why is Dr. Polhemus being fired for politcal issues while there are not any consequences for the administrator of Historic Preservation, or for the administrator of the Land Division which is 5 million dollars in the red due to mismanagement? Not only that, if Polhemus is fired there will only be two active administrators remaining at DAR, a division that is budgeted for six administrators. Why is Thielen decimating DAR?
There will be a hearing March 29 regarding the firing of Dr. Polemus. I urge you to call Governor Lingle (586-0034), and your legislators, to protest the firing.
