'Daily NewsMakers with Jeff Lytle' ... Dudley Goodlette, Edison State College interim president, outlines what comes next for ESC

With public voting set to climax on Tuesday in Collier County, the burning question for Fire Chiefs Bob Metzger (Golden Gate), Kingman Schuldt (East Naples) and Rita Greenburg (Immokalee): Why should voters OK tax cap increases rather than push for consolidation to save money?

Meanwhile, Naples’ Dudley Goodlette, Edison State College interim president, outlines what comes next for ESC after the firing of Kenneth Walker. Will any former staff members be brought back?

The chiefs and Goodlette are guests on this week’s "Naples Daily NewsMakers with Jeff Lytle’’ program airing Sunday morning at 10 on ABC7.

NewsMakers: Dudley Goodlette

What comes next for Edison State College?

Dudley Goodlette

Lytle: You came aboard as interim — strictly temporary. You’re not allowed to apply for the job. What if somebody came to you and said, Dudley, would you accept the job?

Goodlette: No, I wouldn’t. I would not accept it. I mean I think that going into this ... I think it was important to have somebody who’s here who has a defined mission to help restore respectability to this institution, and to do the things that the SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) report says need to be done. And that’s going to be a heavy lift, and I’m anxious to move on and create a solid foundation for the permanent president, whoever he or she may be.
