I am sharing this message on behalf of Al Shea, director of the Office of Business Support and Sustainability...

As many of you know, Bruce Baker announced his retirement as the Water Division Administrator effective March 26. While Bruce's shoes will be very difficult to fill, the Secretary's Office intends to move swiftly to fill this important role. In the interim, Russ Rasmussen is acting administrator.

Anyone interested in applying please provide a resume to Deputy Secretary Matt Moroney by the close of business Friday, April 1. Resumes will be screened and selected candidates will be notified of interview schedules.

If you have questions, contact Matt Moroney or Al Shea.

The diversion is being handled within the Bureau of Drinking Water and Groundwater. I don't see how Cathy Stepp could possibly come into that process.

Why bother seeking candidates, interviewing, hiring and then paying a Water Div admin? The three stooges will do as they will -- without any help from those annoying scientists with all of their irritating facts and science-y talk.
