24th State: Jay Nixon “Maida” Job Out Of Stimulus Dollars

March 8th, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

Another instance of “No Way” Jay cronyism, this time using federal stimulus dollars?

24th State:

Seems Maida Coleman, the former minority leader for Democrats in the  Missouri State Senate has landed a full time gig in Jefferson City.  She’s working as something called a Designated Principal Assistant/Liaison.  That sure sounds like a government title, doesn’t it?  I figured it was going to be printed somewhere by the time I got back, but nothing is live.  To make the mystery deeper, her name isn’t appearing on the MapYourTaxes.gov site.  The position also doesn’t appear in the list of Missouri government jobs for merit pay, and wasn’t posted or even appears to be noticed anywhere in state government, state media, or on personal sites.

I don’t know Coleman’s qualifications, other than being a politician.  I know she is listed as working with  Labor and Industrial Relations while a state senator, but I’m very curious as to why this former minority leader gets a job with the Nixon administration with so little fanfare. Read more…
