Interim Coordinator Named For Region 1
Following the February 8 retirement of Region 1 Coordinator Rocco Brindisi, PEF President Wayne Spence appointed Stephanie McLean-Beathley interim Region 1 coordinator. She will fill that post until a new regional coordinator is chosen in the PEF triennial elections and takes office August 1.
McLean-Beathley is a licensed master social worker 2 and council leader of PEF Division 167 at Western NY Developmental Disabilities Services Office. She will not run for Region 1 coordinator in the triennial election.
Brindisi is a claims services representative 2 for the state Insurance Fund and he has been regional coordinator since August 2015. He previously served three years on the PEF Executive Board.
Spence said, “We thank Rocco for his many years of state service and his service to PEF. We wish him well in his retirement.” — Sherry Halbrook
