JEFFERSON CITY — Alice Bartlett of Chillicothe will replace Bill Foster as the employers’ representative to the Labor and Industrial Relations Commission.

Gov. Matt Blunt said Bartlett will bring a new perspective as he and the legislature strive for changes in the workers’ compensation system.

“I am very excited about this wonderful new challenge,” Bartlett said. “I am looking forward to getting to work.”

This is Bartlett’s first appointment to a state position.

“I think there’s some benefit to bringing people in without a government background to committee,” Blunt said, “and I think that Alice has the experience to be an asset to this commission.”

Citing differences in “operating philosophy,” Bartlett, 61, left a 12-year stint as personnel manager for Wire Rope Corp. of America in January. She will join employee representative John Hickey and chairman William Ringer on the commission.
