Two Finalists Named For Escambia Children’s Trust Director

December 8, 2023

There are two finalists for the next executive director of the Escambia Children’s Trust.

They are:

  • Lindsey Cannon — regional executive director for the Children’s Home Society and
  • Walker Wilson — executive director of the Downtown Improvement Board.

The ECT’s first executive director, Tammy Greer, resigned unexpectedly back in August.

Cannon and Wilson will be officially considered by the full ECT board at an upcoming meeting.

    Actually, Lou, it’s your money. And mine. The county doesn’t have any money except for what they take from us. Check your property tax statement. This org now has their own dedicated line item on the property tax bill. And they pull in more per household than the public library system.

    And, yes, I’d love to have the chance of voting this out, but too many voters check “yes” on anything that sounds like a good idea to them. Budgets be damned!

    DITO @ LOU again i will say – should have been a sales tax on all. not just property buyers / owners. will be hard to do now many hands are in cookie jar now still hopeful something can be done!

    Time to put this back on the ballot! Duplication of services and a waste of county money.

    How much does it pay,
    All salary’s and expenditures should be public.
    This organization reeks of potential fraud.
