Brief: Governor Nominates Two for Waste Management Board

Nov. 28, 2007 — Gov. John deJongh Jr. has made two nominations to the board of directors of the Waste Management Authority, tapping Llewellyn G. Reed Jr. for a second term and nominating Steve Simon to fill a vacant seat.
If confirmed by the 27th Legislature, both nominees will serve three-year terms. Reed was reappointed for a second term on the board, while Simon was nominated to replace attorney John Brion Morrisette, whose term has expired, deJongh said in correspondence to Senate President Usie R. Richards, according to a Government House news release.
Reed is a chemist with Hovensa on St. Croix and has held similar positions at the refinery since 1995. He holds a bachelor of arts degree in chemistry from the University of the Virgin Islands. Simon, a resident of St. John, is a founder and vice chairman of Merchants Commercial Bank, and has served in leadership positions in several private-sector businesses.
DeJongh asked for the advice and consent of the Legislature in enhancing the WMA "board's ability to meet its busy agenda," according to the release.
