(Host) Vermont Corrections Commissioner John Gorczyk has confirmed to VPR that he will be leaving his post. He spoke about that Thursday morning with VPR’s Steve Delaney:
(Gorczyk) “After a little over 11 years in the job as corrections commissioner in Vermont which is a privilege as far as I’m concerned, to have the opportunity to serve that long in that job I won’t be continuing.”
(Delaney) “And next?”
(Gorczyk) “I don’t know yet. I’ve been working for state government now for a little over 29 years, and as I mentioned, the past 11 as commissioner. So before I make any significant decisions, my decision is to spend about three weeks doing as little as possible. There’s a lot of options, frankly and again I feel fortunate in that regard. But to make a decision at this time would be premature.”
(Host) John Gorczyk has had one of the longest tenures of any commissioner currently serving in Vermont. Governor Jim Douglas will soon name a new commissioner of corrections.
