Just read in a TU article that Tim Murphy, Jaxport’s senior director of engineering and construction, worked his last day at the Port Authority on Monday. Randy Murray, a senior project manager in the engineering department, also left the same day. Port officials say it has nothing to do with the ongoing FBI investigation, but both Murphy and Murray were involved in the Port’s dredging projects….and there was that little newsmaker of an article about the Port’s dredging contracts involving Subaqueous Services and Sea Tech and an FBI grab of files, if you recall.
Taking over for Murphy as interim director will be Tony Orsini, who is currently senior director of cruise operations and business development. Perhaps you remember Orsini from a recent public records lawsuit that raised questions about his E-mail conversations with Eric Green over the proposed cruise terminal at Mayport from this jaxpolitics post? (Btw, according to Public Trust’s website, the public records lawsuit is still pending.)
Like I said…changes at Jaxport give me pause.
