Mulroe-McCotterMichael J. McCotter, supported by Sen. John Mulroe (D-10), was recently appointed Inspector General of the Department of Human Services. McCotter had been the acting Inspector General and the appointment solidified his position.


“I am thrilled with Mike’s appointment,” Sen. Mulroe said. "DHS got a great man for the job and I expect superior work to come out of the agency with him at the helm.”


McCotter brings nearly 40 years of law enforcement to his new position. Those who know him consider him to be a hardworking man of integrity with an impeccable record.


McCotter’s laws enforcement background and experience with investigation will be an asset to the agency. That, coupled with his adherence to procedure, fairness and objectivity will be instrumental in moving DHS forward and maximizing the results for the people they care for.

 “I was very pleased that the governor addressed the pension crisis and that he remains firm on tackling the issue in this session.  I was, however, concerned that he did not mention our backlog of bills of $9 billion.  We need to address how we will pay down these accounts and reimburse the people who have provided services to the state who are still unpaid today.”
