DEP searching for chief of staff
The middle of the legislative session is not the ideal time for an agency head to be looking for a new chief of staff -- especially with major energy and Everglades issues at stake. But that's the challenge facing Mike Sole at the Department of Environmental Protection. Chief of staff Kelly Layman has left DEP to take the same post at the Department of Juvenile Justice. To round out this game of musical chairs, former DJJ chief of staff Donna O'Neal left to take a high-level post working for CFO Alex Sink.
