Oopsie! The Position Was Filled Before the Opening Was Posted

Now how is the Chafee administration supposed to fake conduct the nationwide search when this happens??? (Great job exposing this, Kathy Gregg.)

A belated job posting drew 115 applicants for the $88,177-a-year Chafee-administration post held by former Miss Rhode Island Allison Rogers.
Rogers, whose credentials include graduate and under-graduate degrees from Harvard University, was hired May 6 and put to work almost immediately as an executive assistant to Chafee’s director of administration, Richard Licht.
Sometime later, the posting went up for an $83,476-to-$96,927-a-year “executive assistant” to the director in the Department of Administration. The application period: June 18-27.
It is the same job. …

This is actually quite thoughtful. The Federal government makes people go through a 10-page USAJOBS application process and even come in for interviews to maintain appearances when they have a preselected candidate who has already been promised the position. This saves those 115 applicants a lot of time that could be used applying to real openings.
An $88k secretary… only in Rhode Island!

LMAO! This is the guy that hired a staff attorney that wasn’t licensed to practice in Rhode Island. When asked directly by Arlene Violet why the taxpayers should have to pay the salary of lawyer who can’t practice legally in Rhode Island, his answer was, “He’s on the team providing good counsel and I’m looking forward to his advice.” Rules do not apply to Lincoln Chafee.

Another example of why many of us left the beautiful state many years ago. I came back to RI for a wedding 2 wks. ago. The 20 somethings there had one thing in common….they were all working (or planning on ) out of state. The tax base erodes,the population ages and the nepotism goes on. Groundhog Day.
