Following the Jan. 28 meeting of the JEA Board of Directors, Mayor Lenny Curry announced that all six members of the JEA Board Directors will leave their positions effective the end of February.
Mayor Curry’s statement:
I’ve talked to Fred Newbill, Camille Lee-Johnson, Dane Grey and Henry Brown and each informed me it is their desire to end their service with the JEA Board of Directors. I have asked all board members, including April Green who resigned earlier today, to continue to serve until the end of February, and all agreed. Kelly Flanagan will also continue her service until her term expires on February 28th.
To the Board of Directors, I want to thank you for your dedication and service throughout your individual terms. I am grateful for your time, contributions and the incredible commitment this has required.
Moving forward, I will work with City Council to identify and appoint a new executive Board of Directors as soon as possible. Understanding that among their first orders of business will be rebuilding public trust and strengthening the future of this vital and valued community asset.
In conclusion, I am confident there is a positive path forward and I am focused on working together for the best interests of all citizens.
