bmv commish silverman and others resign

joel silverman, the embattled commissioner who many blame for ruining indiana's bureau of motor vehicles, has finally turned in his resignation, effective october 16. TDW has the full press release. the indy star has a story, as well a post on tully's blog. advance indiana has a post up, and i suspect quite a few indiana blogs will have at least a brief note about this soon, as silverman has been by far the most-vilified member of mitch daniels' administration (which is saying a lot).

other changes:

Michael "Mickey" Maurer, Secretary of Commerce and president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), already has announced he would leave his post at the end of the year. Nathan Feltman, current IEDC executive vice president and general counsel, will replace him as Secretary of Commerce and president.

Miguel Rivera, Department of Labor commissioner, has submitted his resignation effective October 6. He has accepted a private sector position. Lori Torres will be the new commissioner effective on or before November 1.

Ron Stiver, commissioner of the Department of Workforce Development, will become the new BMV commissioner. He will be replaced by Andrew Penca, Workforce Development deputy commissioner for strategic research and development.

Harry Gonso, the governor’s chief of staff, will leave his post before the end of the year. Earl Goode, currently the deputy chief of staff and former commissioner of the Department of Administration, will take his place.
