I Choose to Make “IT” Right
Howard Ballin


The reason I chose to take action to make “IT” right is because as a state IT professional I recognized the antiquated classification specifications and the lack of training and adequate compensation for all state IT workers. 

Now the IT Reclass, for the most part, is done – we worked hard to help the state make the right changes. We have to continue to ensure the state’s implementation of the Reclass is completed without harming our members and make sure we are adequately paid for the work that we do. We need to firmly demand the state make “IT” right for all those who dedicate their lives to making state government run.
