The definition of cronyism: the appointment of friends and associates to positions of authority, without proper regard to their qualifications.
I think that it is sad and wrong that Port of Morrow wasted so many folks’ time and energy in the interview process. Mr. Ryan Neal’s qualifications were not even considered, only that he’s known by the port. Wow!
So the Port of Morrow is not interested in true economic development, only that you are a crony! What an unjustifiable reason to even “pretend” to go through a interview process. I believe that other parties involved in the interview panels would have agreed that another candidate would have been the most competent and knowledgeable to do something wonderful with the port.
