Matthew May Publishes Article in The Conversation

Matthew May, a senior research associate with the Idaho Policy Institute recently published an article in The Conversation titled “The Trump administration wants to dismantle the agency overseeing 2 million federal workers – and weaken safeguards against partisanship.”

An excerpt from the article reads:

“The Trump administration is taking several steps that could remove safeguards against partisanship and nepotism in the federal workforce. Among other things, it is pushing to dissolve the Office of Personnel Management, which oversees the administration of the civil service system. Democrats are objecting to this move.

As a public administration researcher, I look at how political partisanship influences the relationship between government employees and elected officials.”
