Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal recently appointed Ronald M. Carrere Jr. to the State Civil Service Commission.
Carrere was nominated by Dr. Norman Francis, president of Xavier University, to represent the 2nd Congressional District. Carrere is a lender at Liberty Bank and Trust Company, and previously worked for the City of New Orleans.
Mr. Carrere will serve out the six-year term vacated by Kenneth A. Polite Jr., who resigned to become United States Attorney of the Eastern District of Louisiana.
The State Civil Service Commission is a seven-member body that has final authority over the administration of the State Civil Service system. The Commission serves as an impartial review board that enacts and adjudicates State Civil Service Rules to regulate state personnel activities, and hears appeals from state employees and agencies. Commission meetings and hearings are held monthly and are open to the public.
Six of the Commission members are appointed by the governor; the seventh is an employee representative elected by fellow state employees. Each member serves a six-year term. When choosing an appointed member, the Governor must select from a list of three people nominated by the president of one of the state's major private universities.
Other members of the Commission include David L. Duplantier, Chairman (Loyola University); John McLure, Vice-Chairman (Louisiana College); G. Lee Griffin (Tulane University); D. Scott Hughes (Centenary College); Sidney Tobias Jr. (Dillard University); and Curtis "Pete" Fremin (employee representative).
