Buzz: ECUA pick turns down job

The sources have shared that Rebecca Shelton, the ECUA board’s pick to be next executive director of the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority, has turned down the job. A deal had been reached on salary and benefits, but Shelton backed out before signing the paperwork. Official storyline is her husband’s employer nixed him being transferred to Pensacola.

Meanwhile: the July 2018 grand jury has yet to be released. ECUA has been using ratepayer dollars to fight its release for 18 months.
