In an email this morning to the Governor’s Appointments Director, Ezzell wrote, “As a Gainesville resident, active community member and business owner for approximately 20 years, I am grateful for opportunities to serve the community I treasure. Unfortunately after careful reading of the bill, I believe I may not qualify for this particular board. While I am a Gainesville resident in the incorporated area and a GRU customer, I do not receive my electricity from GRU. If there is an opportunity for me to serve in the future, I look forward to it.”
Jeremy Redfern, Governor DeSantis’ Press Secretary, told Alachua Chronicle, “We appreciate Dr. Ezzell’s application and were pleased to announce her appointment yesterday, but we understand her concern about receiving electric service from GRU. We will announce another appointment at a future time.”
