Employees at South Carolina’s welfare agency were sent a memo this week notifying them of a staffing change first reported on by FITS.
According to the memo from S.C. Department of Social Services (SCDSS) director Lillian Koller, her firing of longtime deputy director Linda Martin was part of an internal “reorganization” designed to better “integrate and strengthen job attainment and job retention outcomes.”
This scam, in other words.
Koller’s memo also announced the hiring of Amber Gillum from Washington State as the new state director for “economic services.”
“Prior to coming to South Carolina, Amber spent 13 years serving the state of Washington in several capacities, including the Governor’s WorkFirst coordinator (Washington State’s welfare-to-work program),” Koller wrote.
Like the rest of S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s administration, her welfare agency has been nothing short of an unmitigated disaster.
More recently, Koller’s agency has been dragging its feet when it comes to implementing the
key only agenda item in Haley’s so-called “war on fat.”
