There should be a law that says no candidate is eligible that donated to the Governorís campaign for the last 2-3 years.
Since teh governor appoints these people, and effectively rams them through the Governor's Coucil, which the Lt. Governor chairs, there are no checks and balanced on these $160,000 per year, multi-million dollar pension job appointment. This is shameful. This is clearly conflict of interest.
