  1. Kay Ely ran her dividion into the ground and was removed by the Director and placed in a shell position before she left (to avert the writing on the walls / disciplinary action)for nearly bankrupting her division. She relies on her political skills but has very little business acumen, people were glad to see her go, I only feel sorry for the folks who were left to clean up her mess and deal with the people she hired and favored(promotions, illegal hires, etc)
