The Advisory Committee on Background of Principal Officers or Managers met Wednesday afternoon for about 20 minutes, completely re-writing the questions, either through deletion, amendment, or addition. The questions are tailored to fulfill the constitutional requirement of assessment of applicant “character, veracity, background, qualifications, and relevant experience of principal officers or managers.”
Of the original draft 18 questions within the category, eight were deleted and five were added. The category will now have 13 questions.
The committee, consisting of Kimberly Grinstone the Board of Pharmacy Executive Director; and Clay Goddard, the Director of Health for Springfield-Greene County, was tasked to valuate the questions and provide feedback on the proposed questions.
