DEP and DCA gets new Leadership

December 21st, 2006 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Elect Charlie Crist today named two veterans of state government to leadership positions. Tom Pelham will take over the job of managing the states growth at the Department of Community Affairs. He held the same job from 1987 to 1991. He says while there are critics, the state has done a good job.

Its easy to lose sight of how fra weve come when we are inundated with the problems of the moment. I think a question we should always ask is Where would we be if we had not done what weve done over the last three decades. I think we are far better off today not withstanding the problems we have, than we would be if we had not undertaken all the environmental and growth management legislation that we did. But there is always room for improvement, and we have to do better. Says Pelham.

Mike Sole, the number two person at the state Department of Environmental protection will step up the agencies number one spot.
