Breaking: Reston CEO not selected for Columbia post; will focus on deforestation efforts here

Despite an awesome public interview, it turns out that Reston CEO Milton Matthews didn't get the cherry gig of Columbia Association President after all. Our Satan-loving doppelganger to the north instead picked someone who's familiar with the concept of hell on earth--a city manager from Michigan.

On Thursday the CA board of directors announced on their Web site they had chosen the city manager of Troy, Mich. as their new president and CEO. Philip Nelson is expected to begin on May 1, 2009.
Oh, well. Is Matthews devastated?
He said that while he was honored to be one of the finalists chosen through an executive search firm and citizen advisory committee, his focus would be leading RA. "We have a great deal to accomplish with the stream restoration project, the referendum for a new headquarters facility and the election of new board members," he said.
Yeah. After a professional setback, it's always a good idea to focus on all the good things you already have right around you.

  1. So now we are stuck with this incompetent "manager."

    How much longer will we have to suffer through his boondoggles?
