SEDCorp CEO to retire

From page B1 | April 01, 2013 | 1 Comment

The Sierra Economic Development Corp. (SEDCorp) is a joint-powers authority which fosters economic development within the counties of El Dorado, Nevada, Placer and Sierra. SEDCorp’s overall mission is to alleviate unemployment and underemployment while preserving the quality of life in the Sierra Nevada.

After six-plus years as CEO of SEDCorp Brent Smith will retire in August, completing his career working for the public sector. Now that brings us to the challenging task of finding his successor.

SEDCorp is seeking candidates for the office of CEO. Application deadline is April 30. For more information on SEDCorp, visit EEO.

    I guess I’m just jealous. Brent, May you enjoy your retirement. I can’t help but notice that a string of “career chasers “ gallivant from County Government to County Government building plush PERS pensions and tax paid health plans. I don’t know about Brent Smith, but they all seem to come from some other government agencies and have been sued or fired by their last government agency to take new executive positions in our County (over many local employees who have years of knowledge and training in the field). I should give Brent a break, he may not be the average “taker” of government jobs who grab a plush pension plan and free health program and then return to the private SECTOR WITH A GOVERNMENT DECLEARED “FEATHER IN THEIR CAP” to finish out a brilliant “free enterprise” executive board career . In fact I know of little to no accomplishments by SEDCorp CEO regarding alleviation of UNEMPLOYMENT in the County over the past 7 years. - I do know that the board of Supervisors appointed about 6 voluntary citizen’s groups to develop the economy and provide employment. But on a brighter note, the new board of Supervisors appointed a replacement for the retiring Vickie Barber from the ranks of current EDC Employees. Maybe we are making progress. Ernie Louis
