S.C. DDSN Director announces resignation

SOUTH CAROLINA (WJBF) – After months of controversy, the woman in charge of South Carolina’s Disabilities and Special Needs Department, (DDSN) has announced her resignation.

Beverley Buscemi was in charge of the department for eight years, but she says she feels it’s time to move on.
