General Assistance Director Resigns

Dubuque County is looking for a new director for its’ general assistance program. Randy Rennison, current executive director for the Dubuque County Veterans Affairs Commission, submitted his resignation to the Board of Supervisors Monday morning effective immediately. In a letter to the board Rennison says the reason he stepped down was the supervisors decision to “quote” confirm that Josh Jasper, director for Resources Unite will be the new director of the general assistance program effective September 1st. The letter further states that along with his resignation, “general assistance” issues will not be seen or heard within the VA office, so that staff can concentrate solely on veterans issues. Rennison emphasized that he will continue to be head of the VA Commission. A couple of weeks ago the board voted to turn over responsibilities of the general assistance program to Resources Unite and gave the non-profit $30,000.
