Chair:Well, I would caution you to get the commitment up front before you spend dollar one.
Chair:Because, I’d be very curious to see what the total number hired here is.
Blue:I can tell you what the goal hire is.

Nash:Director Johnson, I believe that somebody from the Southern Board would be more appropriate.

Nash:It’s under their portion of the report.
Nash:That piece of information.
Chair:You’re asking specifically about the ex-offenders portion of that? The Faith In Community Based
