Chalk up one scalp for Patrick, I suppose...
Michael Kenney resigned today as executive director of Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority in advance of a report expected to detail his personal ties to a vendor providing line insurance to PWSA customers. (P-G, Smydo & Lord)
Asked whether it was concerned what comes next for the embattled former authority director, Pittsburgh only shrugged.
Like Mr. Kerr, most of Utility Line Security's principals also are executives with Utilishield, which sells water line warranties outside of the city, and Resource Development and Management, which is led by former Allegheny County officials Joseph M. Hohman and James J. Dodaro.
Mr. Kenney described a long professional and personal relationship with the firms and Mr. Kerr. (P-G, Rich Lord, 3/26/10)
That guy. Always with the reverse-trails of breadcrumbs. Alright, so this might not have been a successful scalping, so much as routine seppuku.
*-ADDED: Reading the article again, it's unclear how near the report was to completion, but apparently there were some proceedings earlier this week:
As a rule I dislike using screencaps from Facebook, but the guy doesn't tweet like he used to and does most of his city-related web-trafficking in facespace.
*-UPDATE: Null Space provides a whale of an update on all things water and PWSA.
