Embattled BMV chief gives notice
3 other officials also leaving Daniels administration


Joel Silverman, beleaguered commissioner of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, announced his resignation Wednesday, part of the largest shake-up of Gov. Mitch Daniels' two-year-old administration.

Silverman's decision follows a rocky 21-month tenure that included a botched computer upgrade in July. The effort led to myriad record-keeping problems, customer confusion and long waits at many license branches. He did not offer a reason for quitting, but Daniels spokeswoman Jane Jankowski said the BMV chief had planned to serve in the post for only two years. He will leave Oct. 16.

... snip ...

In other changes:
* Ron Stiver, commissioner of the Department of Workforce Development, will replace Silverman. Andrew Penca, a deputy commissioner at Workforce Development, will succeed Stiver.

* Michael "Mickey" Maurer, secretary of commerce and president of Indiana Economic Development Corp., will leave his post at year's end. Nathan Feltman, the development corporation's executive vice president, will replace Maurer as both secretary of commerce and corporation president.

* Miguel Rivera, Indiana's labor commissioner, will step down Oct. 6 for a private-sector job. Daniels appointed Greenwood attorney Lori Torres to take Rivera's place.

* Harry Gonso, the governor's chief of staff, will leave his post by year's end. Earl Goode, Daniels' deputy chief of staff, will replace him.

1. Yeah, sure he only planned on two years
Too bad his successor thinks he "did a good job." Meet the new boss...

2. And why isn't Esther from the Hoosier Lottery on the list?
What happened - did they run out of pink slips?
The idea of promoting Stiver was stupid - this is the same guy who saved the DWD money by making the unemployed wait 18+ weeks for their first check! And you won't find another government agency that has less customer service skills than the DWD bunch.
Promoting the incompetent - it's the Daniel's way! Maybe it's a club - and they've all got little green jackets with big pockets to hold their frequently-changing business cards.
And there's more to come - wait until they find the unfavorable reviews on the new ICJI Director on the "Don't Date Him Girl" web site (Pity the man's poor wife, as the ex-girlfriend's got an axe to grind...)
Hmmmm...reminds me of a movie...From Titanic: "Iceberg - dead ahead!!!!"

4. Yes, there's a new guy but...
...based on the Guv's comments in today's Indy Star, I'm guessing that there are more heads yet to roll. Anybody care to wager on who's next?
So many idiots to choose from...
My vote is on the Mistress of the Lottery, Esther.
Anyone?
