Governor Kathleen Sebelius has made one appointment and one reappointment to the State Civil Service Board.
“This board serves as a conduit for appeals from classified state employees who disagree with actions taken by their employer,” Sebelius said. “Those who serve on this commission bring fairness and objectivity, and I appreciate Correne’s service.”
Correne Green, Wichita, retired in 2005 from McConnell AFT where she had served as an Equal Employment Opportunity counselor for civilians for eleven years. Green is a certified mediator and has been appointed to serve a two-year term.
Also reappointed to the board was Robert Van Cleave, Overland Park. He has been appointed to serve a two-year term.
The State Civil Board is a five member body which hears appeals from classified state employees with permanent status under the Kansas civil service act as well as applicants for classified positions who are entitled by law and regulation to appeal to the Board. Nearly all appeals heard by the board are from classified employees with permanent status who have been dismissed, demoted or suspended.
