  1. How can this statue be upheld. And in governance when someone is out or sick the system pause. It’s funny enough to say when tax payer have to foot the bill every thing work on bullet train mode. But when it comes to the citizens even a snail is faster.

  2. An acting replacing an acting. Go figure. Peeep what a disgrace . Those singing for their supper lose their voice

  3. That isn’t legal. You cannot have one acting vice someone that is in an acting position. This can only be if the person is confirmed in the post. By the way who is the current Governor acting for. The post is vacant and he has been acting for two years. What a mess.

  4. “It acknowledges her exceptional leadership as a woman” is a bullshit statement. If it were a man, y’all would NEVER have made such a statement. It’s either the person is capable or not. It has absolutely nothing to do with being a woman or not.
