Kentucky says goodbye to its $375K IT man

A day before he was sworn in, new Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear announced his choice of Ruth Day, an executive with the shipping logistics firm Landstar Systems, to run the Commonwealth Office of Technology. Day, who has a 30-year background in consulting and accounting, will replace outgoing CIO Chuck Grindle, whose two-year tenure was known best for his personal friendship with former Gov. Matt Bevin, and the $375,000 salary that made him by far the highest-paid state IT chief in the country. Beshear, who as a candidate frequently made a talking point of Grindle's compensation and his proximity to Bevin, also said Monday that Day will need to address a lot of issues at the Commonwealth Office of Technology. "I believe we have significant and serious problems both in the office and its provision of services to our cabinets," Beshear said. Benjamin Freed has the story.
