Sherman's last day as Social Services director
St. Louis, MO – Today (Tuesday) is Gary Sherman's last day as director of the Missouri Department of Social Services, on of the largest agencies in state government.
The office oversees Medicaid, foster care, and other social programs.
Sherman saw the department through big cuts to Medicaid a few years ago, in which nearly 100,000 recipients lost benefits.
Gov. Matt Blunt had said he'll name an interim director, but hasn't yet done that.
