Harbor District seeks CEO

20120104-215338.jpg[Job announcement]

The Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District is seeking a Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Our mission is to “serve all of the people of Humboldt County by promoting harbor use, enhancing recreational opportunities and protecting bay and tidal environments.” The District was formed in 1973 by an act of the California Legislature and a Humboldt County Initiative to oversee port development and to stimulate commerce, but also to conserve the natural resources of Humboldt Bay. Candidates must possess a track record of demonstrated leadership, proven accomplishments and superior performance in management of large complex programs, dealing with government agencies on environmental permitting, grant acquisition, financial planning and budgeting and coordinating stakeholder involvement.

Salary: $90,000-$120,000, plus benefits

Deadline for receipt of application is Friday, February 10, 2012 at 5 PM, but earlier submissions welcomed. Questions may be directed to Acting CEO Patricia Tyson at 707 443-0801.

If you live out of the area and are considering this position, you should be aware of the many advantages of relocating here. Humboldt County is known for its natural beauty and diverse recreational opportunities. Although we are famous for coastal redwoods and our miles of pristine beaches, Humboldt Bay serves as the iconic focal point of the county’s largest population centers. Wild and scenic rivers suitable for swimming, boating and fishing abound.

We have an exceptional blend of small town quality of life and amenities usually associated with larger population centers. Our health care system is comparable to those in larger metropolitan areas, with three hospitals and a diverse group of specialists. Local public schools and teachers are often selected for State and national awards and we also have an outstanding community college and Humboldt State University. The housing stock offers a unique spectrum of life styles from edge-of-town ranch living, to downtown historic districts, to modern suburban housing. For lovers of art and dining, the region is well known for its breadth of choices and opportunities. And lastly, a description of the Humboldt Bay region is not complete without mentioning its mild maritime climate that never presents extreme cold or hot temperatures.

    to oversee port development and to stimulate commerce

    Two bad things on its agenda. The ecofrecks and CCC will halt all progress in development. And, without proper development, you won’t stimulate commerce. Maybe the occupiers can move into the bay. Where do we get the salary for this position? Because of all the politics involved this becomes a political position.

    And oh yeah, earthquakes. Don’t forget the periodic earthquakes.

    Questions may be directed to Acting CEO Patricia Tyson?
    Why would they allow Dave Hull’s BFF to have anything to do with this?? WTF?

    Still wonder why David Hull was abruptly fired…..

    I expect Karen Brooks and Johanna Rodoni to be applying, they both need income commensurate with being solid Republicans. Except this job requires actual work and being accountable for daily operations.

    But that salary is no big deal anymore, Eureka is paying up to $60,000 for firemen(oops thats “Fire Engineer”) with only High School education. And thats with retirement at 50.

    Another title for a Harbor District CEO is CZAR.

    Advantages of relocating here… Hmmm, let’s start with acting CEO Tyson and her acting King husband, their BFF’s and the circle that seem intent on running a backwater burg deeper into the swamp. This would include the good-ol-boy ones,adulturous one, you-scratch-my-whatever-I’ll-scratch-yours relationships and of course, Arkely, just to name just a few.
    That’s probaby the biggest “advantage” a candidate will have to wrap their head around.

    If you want to see more strip malls and apartments along the water, please do not apply. How much you wanna bet somebody with a hand in somebody else’s pocket is going to apply? Who was that strip mall representative that was recently given a position within the ranks of humboldt’s decision makers? Back scratchers….

    I don’t want any more strip malls but some condos and apartments, parks, restaurants on the water would be nice. We have old trashy pulp mills and wastelands where we could be enjoying the gorgeous views.

    They weren’t trashy when they were running. They were important to us. Now, they are a pile of trash, and need to go unless they van get them up and running.

    How’s life treating you, anon? sad to see man in his late fifties, someone who should otherwise be a titan in his profession, skulking about like a lil kid with the handle “anon”…

    Maybe Rex wants the job? It pays more than Supervisor.

    Nah, sad is NOT being able to deny the veracity of the actual statements.

    “trashy pulp mills” damn the working man.” typical Smokemonster

    Trashy pulp mill is RIGHT.
    Now it is solid waste and needs to be outtathere.
    Should have been cleaned-up decades ago.
    Ask Kirk why we are still having to put up
    with waste, right smack on the coastline, to the west of Eureka
    so that every sunset includes his old workplace.
    Friends of Kirk do what they like, where they like.

    Let’s hope they select a qualified person for the job. It can’t be an easy one. What, with having to balance the diverse demands of this divided community. I say exclude from consideration any of the five clowns that fired Mr. Hull. He seemed to be doing a fine job.

    Maybe Dan Hauser is looking for work. He could do for the harbor what he did for the railroad.

    The principle job of the new director will be to take whatever small sums the harbor commission is able to raise and to funnel them to those consultants and contractors who have the right connections.

    Hauser knows all the connected grifters. He may be a little rusty about which one’s turn it is to get a nice consulting contract, but he can pick that up pretty quickly. If not, they’ll be sure to fill him in.

    I’d say Hauser is just about ideal for the job.

    I heard Coast Oyster is being purchased by Pacific Choice, I wonder if they are keeping Greg Dale?
