Chair Indya Kincannon immediately congratulated him for submitting his name and said that she would nominate him. She then proceeded to make the case for her to become Vice Chair. In an effort to “help” Deakins.
The last thing the board needs is to continue a confrontational attitude with the funding body and fiscal head of county government (county commission and county mayor) I would hope that the board would make a clean break with it’s leadership, in order to create a working relationship with the funding body and fiscal head of county government. Deakins as Chairman and Kim Sepesi as Vice Chair would be a good clean break.
