Running Government Like A Business

The Fraudster-in-chief doesn’t seem to be able to keep department heads and managers in his administration. His latest loss is Gisela Sala, the director of the Division of Elections, who has resigned effective tomorrow, August 1, two weeks before the state’s primary election.

She has only had the job for a little over a year, but it has been a year in which the legislature and governor have been playing multiple games with Florida’s elections. During that time she has been commuting from Ocala, which tends to indicate that she has been reluctant to commit to the $90K/year job.

All the public really knows is that she resigned, and only found out when local supervisors of elections were notified by e-mail.

People who know her from her years working on elections in South Florida and Ocala are surprised that she would leave this close to an election.

Given the number of people who have resigned from major offices under Rick Scott, I can’t say that any reason would surprise me. The current top soap opera is the court case involving his lieutenant governor. It is hard to beat CEO leadership … if you want cheap entertainment. 😈

My guess is that she doesn’t feel like spending the next four years in court defending policies she really doesn’t agree with…

I totally agree, especially since Florida can get changeable about who pays the costs of these cases, the state or the employee.
