Today is Roger Kelley's last day at the helm of the New York Power Authority. His resignation, demanded in June by Gov. David Paterson, takes effect at midnight.
I've taken Kelley to task a little bit for not doing more for Western New York during his year as CEO. He is from Clarence, and quite a few folks thought he'd do more for the hometown than he has.
At the same time, many of the people I respect in the NYPA bureaucracy hold Kelley in high regard and are sorry to see him leave. They consider him a knowledgeable professional holding a job that too often in the past has been held by a politico. And could be again.
As Kelley exits, attention turns to his replacement, who the governor has yet to name.
