Judge Robert Eckels moves on

Well known for his work with Hurricane Katrina evacuees, County Judge Robert Eckels announced his resignation at the State of the County address yesterday for the Greater Houston Partnership.

As Charles Kuffner mentioned earlier, it is irritating that he would decide 2 months into the new 4 year term that he was leaving for the private sector. Is that fair to voters or is that just standard practice in the political world?

The above photo was taken by Ed Schipul at the Accessible Internet Rally (AIR Houston) where Judge Eckels served as a co-chairman. The only other interaction I’ve had with him was as a speaker at a PR luncheon where he outlined Houston’s efforts to help Katrina victims. He impressed me at both events by not being a greasy politician. Sometimes I’m easy to please… or maybe just easy to fool?
