David Politis wrote a fairly complimentary article about me in the Monday Business Section of the Deseret News. Its interesting that he quoted from my blog extensively and linked to my resignation letter. David finishes with this observation:
In my opinion, the big takeaway from this entire mess is that Leavitt will have his hands full in finding a tech- and politically-savvy CIO for the state. In this time of financial shortfalls up on Capitol Hill, the risk is that continued advancement of technology services within state government will get a short shrift minus a strong CIO at the helm. And that would not be a good thing.
This will be an interesting task, indeed. I've discussed my recomendations with the Governor and the Chief of Staff. I think I have a pretty good idea who the replacement will be and I believe it will be an interesting choice.
