Uh oh

Kind of a relaxed attitude toward hiring procedures for the people who are supposed to be in charge of the hiring procedures.
The chairwoman of the New Orleans Civil Service Commission has overstayed her term by more than three months, The Lens has learned, calling into question key votes in which she  participated.

The term of Michelle Craig expired in early August, weeks before she voted in favor or Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s Great Place to Work Initiative — a sprawling and controversial package of changes to rules on how city employees are hired, promoted and evaluated. Although that vote still appears to be valid, Craig’s status raises concerns about related actions taken by the commission, including the hiring of an outside attorney using public money to fight a lawsuit against the Great Place to Work Initiative.
Well that's a predicament.  Surely, nothing a few more closed door executive session meetings won't fix, though.
