Full Cabinet

It doesn't appear that an official announcement has been made, so I won't step on that, but I have it on good authority that Ted Strickland has finally named a Director for the Department of Mental Health, and that this person was worth the wait.

I'll update this after it goes public.


It's been released. Sandy Stephenson is the new director at ODMH, starting June 04. A lot of people have been waiting for this apointment (Mental Health just went through the entire biennial appropriations process without a director). I've never met Ms. Stephenson, but I know several people who know her well, and among them the universal reaction to this choice is "fantastic."

I think the transition is now actually complete.

Update #2:

I guess Mark Rollenhagen at the PD liked my title. Either that or we're both just lame.
(edited to change 'Stevenson' to the actual spelling of 'Stephenson.' My apologies.)
