Gov. Rick Scott appointed Richard Toppino to the seat vacated by Melva Wagner on the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority Board (FKAA). It’s an extremely interesting choice as Toppino’s family business does a lot of work with the FKAA. Potential conflicts galore!
I don’t know Richard Toppino personally. He might be alright. But there were eleven applicants for the slot. I wrote about them here. Many with zero conflicts. Why choose this particular applicant?
