New Blood at Broward Health Board?
|Jaeger's former seat on the hospital board has yet to be filled.|
There is one unfilled seat on the board -- the one belonging to former Commissioner Maureen Jaeger, who this past fall took a job with Sen. George LeMieux in Washington, D.C. Another commissioner, Rebecca Stoll, hasn't attended a board meeting since July, and she may also have lost interest in serving on the scandal-plagued panel.
If those commissioners are replaced in time for next Wednesday's scheduled board meeting, it could mean a stay of execution for Nask, who was facing
a board vote on his future. Commissioner Robert Bernstein wants to fire Nask. But two new commissioners would be unlikely to cast votes on such a monumental issue. Potentially, they could place Bernstein back in the commission minority, where he was for most of last year.
Crist's press secretary, Sterling Ivey, told me he had nothing about new appointments to the board.
