Personnel Changes at the Commission Level
The Commission is now fully staffed. The Governor appointed one new public Commissioner, Michael Brennan, late last summer and has now appointed a second public Commissioner. Therefore, Commissioner Brennan is no long serving double duty and hearing appeals on both panels B and C of the Commission.
The new public Commissioner is a well known individual – Stephen Mathis. Commissioner Mathis is an attorney who has served as a downstate arbitrator at the Commission since 1996. He was always a fair arbitrator and we expect he will bring that attitude to the Commission.
With the addition of Commissioner Mathis, the 3 panels of Commissioners have been realigned. Here is a table of the current assignments of Commissioners.
|Commissioners by Panel||Panel A||Panel B||Panel C|
|Employee Representatives||Thomas Tyrrell||Charles DeVriendt||David Gore|
|Public Representatives||Michael Brennan||Daniel Donohoo||Stephen Mathis|
|Employer Representatives||Kevin Lamborn||Ruth White||Mario Basurto|
