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.
