JDA board narrows director search to three. I'm encouraged by the fact that they are not considering any of the local applicants. Most were just tossing in their resumes in a proverbial hail Mary pass. The one local in a tangential current occupation had nowhere near the qualifications of at least a dozen from elsewhere. It looks like the first two in the article are well qualified. I'm not so sure about the third guy, from Jax. I suspect they are just using him as a place filler to say they had three finalists.

I tend to agree with you.

However, I was intrigued by his statement:"'You really have to work weith the board. Their goals have to be my goals.'" That statemernt was preceeded by this paragraph: "He said his philosophyis that the JDA and executive director must work together to achieve their goals."

Well, I certainly hope that his is just interview talk and htat he immdeiately comes to the realization that the evidence is clear that this JDA board, while well meaning, has no clue as to how to go about recruitring business to Camden COunty. One would hope that he will take the bull by the horns and use his experience to tell them what needs to be done - not the other way around.

His bio was impressive until I read the statement you're referring to. You're right thats exactly what we don't need.

But based on him saying that and th proper placement in the paper I believe he will be the one they choose. They most certainly won't choose the last guy.
