He urged them to look at the assessment and ask themselves if that was indeed their best, “or if there is a way they could serve the people of the state for better”.

The governor also urged them not to relent from the high standard they were being rated but should keep raising the bar.

“Even, when I’m holding you accountable to a very high standard, it is because some of you will go beyond this post to something higher,” he said.
