Kennedy announced his intentions Tuesday to retire on June 29. That is the day before the Government Accountability Board which he heads is dissolved and reconstituted as two separate commissions.
The 64-year-old Kennedy has worked for the state on elections for 37 years. He first served on the state Elections Board as an attorney and then executive director from 1982 to 2007. He then served as head of the GAB from 2007 until his retirement.
I’m curious as to the timing. Is there something to do with a pension payout or something that dictates the timing?
