New Forest Supervisor at Tahoe: Business as Usual or a More Efficient and Accountable Agency?
A number of news outlets have covered the recent announcement that Jeff Marsolais was named as the new forest supervisor for the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. For example, the Tahoe Daily Tribune printed a Q&A with the new supervisor. What remains to be seen is whether Mr. Marsolais will perpetuate the status quo initiated by his predecessor or work to lead a more efficient and accountable agency. Let's hope for the latter. Both the public and agency staff would benefit from leadership in the Management Unit that makes fiscally responsible decisions informed by quality science in a transparent manner.
