Don't let the door hit you on the way out Olga.
This state has had its share of pitiful directors and leftover meat puppets from prior administrations. Though selected by the incoming Snyder administration, Dazzo was clearly designed to fit in with them. I had written before:
"In January of 2011, Maura Corrigan, former Michigan Supreme Court Justice, and the newly installed DHS director, rightly declared the child care workers were NOT employees of the state, ending their nightmare, but the Director of the Department of Community Health Olga Dazzo had no such plans. This required further legislative action to clarify the status of the contractors."And the legislation came, then so did the lawsuit holding up an end to the THEFT that COULD have been avoided if Dazzo had been paying attention, or if she had actually given a rats @$$.
Of course Snyder could have done more as well, but at least Maura had the sense of what is proper, and didn't need the prod that would never be forthcoming from our falling over left get-along RINO chief executive. Now Olga is leaving:
"LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today accepted the resignation of Department of Community Health Director Olga Dazzo, who has decided to return to the private sector. The governor named former Director James K. Haveman, Jr. to lead the agency. Dazzo was appointed by Snyder in December 2010. "Hast la Pasta. Ciao. Say "Yanara" ..
I doubt we've seen the last of her though. It wouldn't surprise me if in her future "private sector" endeavors, she doesn't wind up financially interested in some health care exchange contracts.
Nah.. THAT never happens.
