Ninety workers in the Secretary of States Office have been notified they are being laid-off as of July 1st. The action comes after budget cuts of almost $8 million left the Secretary with few options to balance the budget with limited means.
Spokesman Dave Druker says in addition to the layoffs, the office will not be filling 160 open positions.
Druker says the lay-offs are coming at all levels - union workers, exempt, and merit-comp employees and from all areas of the state.
Druker adds the Secretary will strive to maintain the same level of services to the public with fewer employees.
