Executive Director Performance Evaluation

The personnel committee, Chair Fluegel and Ms. Chase, reviewed the performance of Ms. Olson. Ms. Olson’s performance has been satisfactory in all respects and she will receive the full salary increase as allowed under the terms of the Manager’s Plan.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S REPORT

Ms. Olson submitted the following written report:

Staff Activities

With assistance from Counsel Huwe, staff is negotiating a contract with Shared Resource Management (SRM) to provide programming services for Finance ‘02. Work on the project is expected to begin October 30th.

September 22 – Ms. Olson met with Laura Offerdahl from the Governor’s office to discuss the Governor’s plans for 2001 regarding campaign finance and public subsidy issues.

September 26 - Staff processed public subsidy payments to approximately 360 candidates.

October 2 and 3 – Ms. Olson was in Lexington, Kentucky, to assist in planning the 2001 Council on Governmental Ethics Laws (COGEL) conference and to review the performance of COGEL’s secretariat.

October 11 – Ms. Olson was a guest lecturer at a William Mitchell Law School class on Legislative Advocacy, leading a discussion on lobbyist registration, reporting, the prohibition on gifts, and campaign finance provisions of Chapter 10A.

October 16 – Mr. Nesbitt conducted a training class on Finance ’98 for four clients.

Personnel

Two staff members have requested to work less than full time. In an effort to save salary dollars, Ms. Olson has approved the requests. Ms. Larson began working seven hours a day on October 11th. Ms. Klingner will begin working four days a week after the pre-general election Reports of Receipts and Expenditures for political committees, political funds, and party units have been entered into the Board’s database. Ms. Larson and Ms. Klinger will increase their work hours when necessary to ensure that deadlines are met.

Mr. Sigurdson reviewed the performance of Kelly Hansen. Ms. Hansen’s performance meets expectations. Based on the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) contract she will receive a step increase.

Tom Thao, Information Systems Specialist II, has accepted a position with the University of Minnesota and will be terminating his employment with the Board on October 31st.

Billie Claire Errico, Investigator, received a letter from Governor Ventura commending her for "going above and beyond the call of duty" in assisting a client.

Miscellaneous

The Lobbyist Disbursement Summary and the Board’s Annual Report for fiscal year 2000 were available for Board members

Resolution on Public Subsidy Payment

Ms. Pauly’s MOTION: Move adoption of the following resolution:

Resolved that the Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board ratifies the administrative action of the Jeanne Olson, Executive

 

Director, to make a public subsidy payment on September 26, 2000, to Debra Hilstrom.

The administrative action was needed because during the physical audit of files of candidates who qualify for public subsidy payments, Board staff was not able to locate a Public Subsidy Agreement for Ms. Hilstrom. The following evidence indicates that Ms. Hilstrom did sign a Public Subsidy Agreement:

The candidate database maintained by the Board shows that Ms. Hilstrom did file a public subsidy Agreement on March 2, 2000.

Ms. Hilstrom recalls filling out the Public Subsidy Agreement in the Board’s office in order to receive Political Contribution Receipt (PCR) books. The Board issued Ms. Hilstrom PCR books. PCR books are only issued to candidates that have a Public Subsidy Agreement on file with the Board.

The documents filed with the Board by candidates are public information. The public frequently inspects the candidate files. There is a significant opportunity for documents to be lost or misfiled after they are submitted to the Board.

Ms. Hilstrom was notified of the missing Public Subsidy Agreement on September 24, 2000. She submitted a replacement Agreement on September 26, 2000.

Vote on MOTION: Unanimously passed.

Common Cause – Roundtable on Election Law Simplification (see September 21 minutes)

Ms. Olson reported on the first of three meetings to be held on election law simplification. She asked Board members if they wanted to make a formal recommendation to Common Cause on the issue. The Board agreed that the 1997 Board recommendation to the legislature would continue to be the Board’s stand on the issue (see copy of recommendation attached).

Request for acceptance of a change in beginning cash balance

David Ek, treasurer, 17B House District RPM - On the year-end Report of Receipts and Expenditures covering calendar year 1999, the 17B House District RPM disclosed an ending cash balance of $1,564.23.

The beginning cash balance of $1,298.86 is the figure he received from the bank statement for December 29, 1999.
