“Of course, we cannot comment…”

December 21, 2012

A public protest is being mounted across the street from its office, but the Oconee Department of Social Service will have nothing to say about a group of people who are holding up signs and making public their dispute with the child placement section of the state agency. A DSS employee issued a no comment statement to 96.3/WGOG NEWS, at the direction of her boss, DSS Director Elaine Bailey. A woman by the name of Lynne Delph has identified herself as the great grandmother of a child and says DSS won’t place the child in her custody, though Delph claims she is qualified to provide care. Delph described a complex ongoing legal process in which she is trying to intervene on the child’s behalf. Apparently the same group has taken the protest and their signs to a location near the old Oconee Courthouse.
