A special board meeting is scheduled for Thursday to consider and possibly approve David Riley as Brooke's replacement.Whoever is the next E.D. at the agency, I hope they're given time to right the boat. More than anything at this point TJJD needs competent, stable leadership. Over the past seven years they've had incredible turnover at that top spot, as well as in many of the key leadership positions in senior management.
If confirmed, Riley, who is currently chief juvenile probation officer for Bexar County, would start on May 12.
If Mr. Riley gets the job I wish him luck; he's going to need it.
