|Edwin Buss was pushed out as Florida's|
Corrections Director after just six months on the job
Now the Governor has brought in Floridian Edwin Buss to oversee the so-far so-poor performance of prisons food services provider Aramark.
Buss was pushed out as Florida's Director of Corrections after only six months on the job by Governor Rick Scott. Scott's office had cancelled two contracts signed on behalf of the state by Buss:
- An agreement allowing filming of MSNBC's "Lockup" at a Florida prison
- A program to privatize health care at the state's 60 prisons.
After getting the heave-ho from Scott, Buss went to work for Correctional Healthcare Companies Inc., a Tennessee company which outsources medical and mental health care for prisoners.
Always nice to know Michigan can count on retreads from other states to handle the big stuff.
