BARC Chief Is Fired, With Little In The Way Of Explanation
BARC Bureau Chief Ray Sim was fired today, spokeswoman Kathy Barton confirmed. She would not give specific reasons, saying only "I think it was just an issue of timing...[it was] not the right time for this guy."
Sim began his job in May, after the Department of Health and Human Services conducted a seven-month nationwide search to replace the previous chief, Kent Robertson.
Barton said that since the "incident command team" will be in charge for the time being, "There will not be a lack of leadership."
