Our View: Stronger oversight still necessary for Go Lake Havasu | Opinion

Go Lake Havasu's hiring of Susan Smith as CEO last fall highlighted serious deficiencies in the executive committee's due diligence.

This oversight becomes even more problematic if the Commission is aware of these facts and chooses to ignore them.

Smith is likely a capable manager and will likely bring exciting new ideas to Go Lake Havasu. But past performance is the only metric you can use, and in this case, past performance has some big red flags.
