Susan Latvala Needs to GO

Palm Harbor, FL

#1 Jul 29, 2014
Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala has single handedly limited the good folks of Pinellas County the opportunity to find a new County Administrator. In what most in the county believe was an intentional attempt to persuade other commissioners to hire Mark Woodard before other more qualified candidates would apply for the position, Ms. Latvala made a public statement about her pleasure and desire to have Mr. Woodard continue in his role as the permanent Administrator thereby all but stopping the flow of well qualified and interested applicants. Adding to the already incense of county employees, Ms. Latvala went onto say how she and the other commissioners have received so many emails affirming their desire to have Mr. Woodard as the new administrator. Of course, it appears Ms. Latvala realizes that employees who do not believe Mr. Woodard is a good fit for the position would surely send emails as well indicating their lack of support. Wake up! How can employees send emails of non-support when Mr. Woodard is the current administrator and now likely the next? How do these officials earn over $90, 000 in salaries and not have enough common sense to recognize their role in politics. How about this Ms. Latvala, if you really want to know the opinions from employees about your Mr. Woodard, send out a survey to all external partners, employees and management for their input instead of all of those emails his secretary has been soliciting! And we wonder why government is in such poor shape!
