The JEA Board has taken a few Stinks of late and we are happy to be able to give a Wink today.
The search is underway for a new CEO to run the utility. In an Open Letter to the JEA Board, we questioned why two qualified internal candidates had been crossed over for the interim CEO position for a board member appointed by the Mayor.
Yesterday the Board took up that discussion and they are asking good questions about the experience needed for the JEA CEO position. They are also questioning what the corporate structure should be at the utility.
Normally the CEO would decide the corporate structure because the board comes and goes and is not really in charge of running the day to day operations.
However, we applaud the JEA Board for discussing these thoughts and carefully weighing all the options. Good debate and open dialogue is always good for the soul of a city.
Good job JEA Board.
