Been a lot of rumors going around about who will replace Joe Jarret as law director before his former opponent Bud Armstrong takes over.
I'm thinking it's probably going to be Richard Beeler, the law director from 1990 through 2000 and the pension board's litigation attorney. He told me today that he would apply.
Personally, I can't think of too many more people qualified at this point in time. He knows the job, he can step in and run the office. And he can help oversee/represent the charter review committee. Heck, he helped write the charter back in 1987. (Plus, the guy skydives, which is kind of cool.)
Anyhoo, he'll be submitting his resume tomorrow morning. I don't think a lot of people are going to apply for the gig.
But, that's just my guess.
UPDATE: Just saw that the rogue blogger says David Buuck will also apply. Click right smack here for his thoughts. As I recall, Buuck applied for the spot back when the county commission appointed Jarret. He also practices government law.
