“The Board and I thank Interim Commissioner Tahoe for her leadership during this unprecedented time. When Ms. Tahoe took over the position, no one could have imagined that a global pandemic was on the horizon. Ms. Tahoe capably led the Department through one of its most challenging times and proved herself as a dedicated and personable leader. Throughout her 14 years at the Department, Ms. Tahoe served the Board of Regents and Department well with her expert legal counsel on critical policy matters and key initiatives. We wish her well in her next chapter.”
The Board continues its search to find a permanent Commissioner and expects to appoint an Acting Commissioner before Ms. Tahoe departs on Aug. 13.
