Conner, Deirdre, The Florida Times Union


Byline: DEIRDRE CONNER

The following members of the St. Johns River Water Management District's governing board make the final decision on large water-use permits, including the water in the St. Johns and Ocklawaha rivers.

DAVID G. GRAHAM

CHAIRMAN

Jacksonville

Age: 52

dgraham@sjrwmd.com

Background: Has been involved in banking and financial services in Jacksonville since 1979; has a fishing and hunting plantation in Southern Georgia; grew up here along the banks of the St. Johns, and said those fond memories spurred his interest in the board and his desire to clean up the river.

Position on river withdrawals: Additional studies are necessary before large-scale withdrawals. But "I believe there is some amount of water that can be taken out of the river."

Appointed: 2001, by Gov. Jeb Bush. Expires March 2009

SUSAN N. HUGHES

VICE CHAIRMAN

Ponte Vedra Beach

Age: 50

shughes@sjrwmd.com

Background: Chief human resources officer for JEA, and previously its vice president of environmental services; member of the Florida Council of 100 that issued a 2003 report recommending leaders examine transferring water from water-rich areas in the north part of the state to water-poor areas of the south, but she said that "all other options should be exhausted" beforehand.

Position: Did not want to comment before all the information comes out, but said the river was "a very rational thing" for Central Florida utilities to look at.

Appointed: 2003, by Bush. Expires March 2010

ANN T. MOORE

SECRETARY

Bunnell

Age: 69

Of the Seminole County permit, she said, "I'm sure now that because it's going to [a state administrative hearing] that the science that both sides have to offer will be more extensive, and there will be opportunity for better understanding by the time it gets back to the board."

Appointed: 2001, by Bush. Expires March 2009

W. LEONARD WOOD

TREASURER

Fernandina Beach

Age: 61
