CWF was surprised to see that although SB 11-208 has not reached the House yet, the job announcement for the position of Director of Parks and Wildlife not only is posted, but the application period closes on Monday, April 18. Does this seem to anyone as though the cart is being put before the horse? The rationale is that senior service executives must reapply for their positions, as required by the Governor. BUT they could have posted BOTH positions - DOW director and State Parks director -- - with a caveat that ONE agency might result if SB11-208 is passed, and therefore, the candidate pools might become merged in the selection process.
