Let me get this straight - a school teacher, Jim Norton, is the State Environmental Protection Division Director?
That makes no sense whatsoever...

His previous job is not mentioned in the story and not relevant to the landfill violations. Got that straight?

What you are saying is that his qualifications, or lack thereof are not relevant to him filling a position?
Here's a question for you - would you get a medical check up from a school teacher? How about from another professional that is not a doctor?
On the contrary, his lack of qualifications do mean something - GOT THAT?

The subject of story is the landfill violations. I'm sure the department staff prepared the complaint. There is nothing in the story and I don't have any special knowledge about his qualifications, performance or what the job entails. If you felt you were more qualified and passed over, I can sympathize. But the important thing is the landfill, no?

Karla - Thank you for your input and your defense of a very flawed status quo - so I guess you would send your kids to see an unlicensed, unqualified person appointed to be a medical doctor?
The important thing, big picture-wise, is the environment and having qualified people to act as stewards, not political hacks.
No, Karla, unlike you, I was not passed over, but retired with over 30 years of experience and it turns my stomach to see what has happened to that agency.

You are tripping. You have a beef a co-worker named Karla, too?
