The Secretary of State is a member of the Cash Management Policy Board. This is the same Board that Treasurer Chip Flowers is attempting to by-pass so that he can play with and more aggressively invest Delaware’s short term cash. At the bottom of this post is the landing page of the Secretary of State’s website. Clicking on the link to the Cash Management Policy Board comes up with the following from the Treasury’s (aka The Treasurer’s) website:
Apologies, but the page you requested could not be found. Perhaps searching will help.
Taking the advice given, a web search of the Treasurer’s site for “Cash Management Policy Board” comes up with… “Nothing Found.” However, a search for “Cash Management Policy” comes up with the Treasurer’s own thoughts as to how to invest Delaware’s short term cash holdings.
I guess when the Treasurer spent a bunch of money updating his office’s website into a puff-piece, he neglected to check for other State website inbound links or inform members of the Cash Management Policy Board that he was purging all details of their existence from “his” site.
Oversight? Incompetence? Purposeful? You make the call…
