Two members left off foster care review board for 2011

Gov. Dave Heineman told two members of the state's Foster Care Review Board that they will not be reappointed next year. Alfredo Ramirez, current chairman of the board, and Ron Albin will see their terms expire on Jan. 1. Heineman's spokesperson said the governor routinely makes changes to board appointments to involve more people. Last year Nebraska began to privatize its child welfare system, hiring independent contractors to handle the majority of foster care services. Since then, three of the five agencies hired to provide those services have terminated their contracts with the state over financial difficulties.
