Buzz: White and Valentino at it again

September 1, 2010

We’re hearing that Escambia County Commissioner Kevin White wants to appoint Karen Sindel to the county planning board and fellow commissioner, Gene Valentino, isn’t happy. Sindel was Valentino’s appointee to the board until she resigned last November to run against him.

I’m not sure that Valentino is upset about Sindel being on the board, just that White did it before Valentino had a chance to make the offer himself.

    Don’t commissioners usually appoint people from their own district (to represent those interests on the board)?
    Or is that common to appoint someone from outside?

    Just another reason to vote for Paul Redman in Nov.

    Sindel was already on the Planning Board before Valentino took office. She may have been re-appointed by Valentino after he was elected.
