State Representative Randy Terrill, Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Public Safety and Judiciary, is the newest member of OPEA.
Terrill joined the Association Wednesday following a DOC legislative tour of the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center.
“OPEA is an invaluable resource to me as I deliberate issues of corrections and public safety,” Terrill said in a letter addressed to OPEA Executive Director Sterling Zearley.
“I know a little bit about state employment, having worked for the Department of Labor and the Department of Mental Health before my election to the House of Representatives. Therefore, I want to assure state employees that OPEA is the finest, most professional organization working with us at the Capitol; no other organization even comes close!”
