He is responsible only to the Legislative Council. WTF is a Legislative Council? From the Delaware Code 1101:

There is created a Legislative Council which shall be composed of 10 members of the General Assembly as follows:

(1) From the Senate: The President Pro Tem, the Majority Leader, the Minority Leader, 1 member appointed by the President Pro Tem and 1 member appointed by the Minority Leader.

(2) From the House: The Speaker of the House, the Majority Leader, the Minority Leader, 1 member appointed by the Speaker and 1 member appointed by the Minority Leader. (29 Del. C. 1953, § 1101; 55 Del. Laws, c. 322; 59 Del. Laws, c. 253, § 14.)

So WTF is a controller? Again from the Delaware Code 1110:

(a) The Council shall appoint a Controller General who, primarily, shall work with and assist the Joint Finance Committee of the General Assembly.

(b) The Controller General shall:

(1) At all times have full and complete access to all records of all agencies of the state government;

(2) Participate in any or all hearings held by the Joint Finance Committee of the General Assembly, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget or other state agencies in connection with contemplated general fund budget appropriations, capital improvement programs or supplementary appropriations;

(3) Request and obtain from any state agency all reasonable information and data as directed by the Joint Finance Committee to assist the General Assembly in the effective discharge of its state financial responsibilities; and

(4) Perform such duties as may be assigned or delegated to the Controller General by the Legislative Council.

(c) The Controller General has the authority to perform management and program reviews. Management and program reviews shall include, but are not limited to, any analyses necessary to determine operational efficiency and effectiveness, compliance with the laws of Delaware and legislative intent.

(d) The Council shall provide a secretary and such other aides as may be necessary to enable the Controller General to perform such functions.

(e) The Controller General, the secretary to the Controller General and such other aides as shall be employed to assist the Controller General shall receive such compensation, including salaries and other necessary expenses, as shall be determined by the Council, subject to the limitations imposed in the annual appropriation act. (29 Del. C. 1953, § 1110; 57 Del. Laws, c. 277; 62 Del. Laws, c. 277, § 18; 70 Del. Laws, c. 186, § 1; 75 Del. Laws, c. 88, § 21(13).)

The Controller General is a toady of the legislative council. Do as I say or you shall be paid 1 dollar this year is not beyond the council’s privilege. Therefore one can assume that those who killed the Bluewater Wind are those same few who killed the openness of the General Assembly act several years in a row.

This time they have dealt Delaware a 1.3 Billion a year stab in it economic heart….This time they cost us real money.

The Controller General is not responsible to the entire General Assembly. He is responsible only to the leadership, which as we all know, is far more concerned about its self preservation, than it is about the welfare of Delawareans…..

At least to the tune of 1.3 billion a year.

Therefore these people must go.

No matter what defense these few may offer publicly, when all evidence is on the table, they cost everyone in Delaware real money. Actions speak louder than words.

If you know anyone in those districts you should encourage them to run. I am sure Babcock and Brown with assets of 55 Billion would be glad to assist in financing some of their campaign expenses……………..

So far one candidate has contested Terry Spence. Contribute to his campaign today. As far as you and the rest of Delaware are concerned, there is close to a 1.3 billion rate of return on your investment.
