Interim Chief Kraus has quite a resume! I hope he is being not just considered, but first in line to take the job permanently. So often, the best choice is right in front of us, but there is a feeling that a "search" must always be conducted. It does not hurt as long as home-grown talent is not over-looked as in " no prophet is accepted in his hometown."
