Each year PSTA Board Members are asked to complete a formal evaluation of the PSTA CEO Brad Miller. 

This Series gives the detailed evaluation by each PSTA Board Member.

Text is taken from Documents obtained from formal Public Records Request with NO edits.

Instructions (To Board Members)
Please take a few minutes to provide a numerical score in the following 10 general performance areas. You may also provide narrative comments as needed. A narrative providing some further explanation of each performance area is provided to help guide you in developing your overall score.

Reviewer:  Dave Eggers Commissioner Pinellas County
1. Organizational Leadership
Rating for this category is a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:  2

COMMENTS:  Overall I would like to see have seen more leadership on the Path Forward during Greenlight as the questions asked and answered were ones that should have been addressed all along. Also would like to see more proactive legal assistance to avoid situations like the recent policy change on taping meetings with or without notification to the participant.
Additionally the message and deliverer of the Greenlight message in the public realm was weak. Don't know how leadership is with the executive Committee or employees


2. Future Opportunities & Investments
Rating for this category is a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:  2

COMMENTS:  Felt too much reliance was placed on Green Light and opportunities for organizational or service improvements were not explored and partnerships were not obtained. The way the discussions were approached with the MPO on accessing capital was not handled well though the premise of the ask is fair.

3. Policy Development & Strategy
Rating for this category is a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE: 3

COMMENTS: The move to have committees certainly has allowed for more robust discussions but with the exception as to where an item should be designated for discussion at the board meeting. The committee should decide whether or not to place on agenda or consent agenda.

Feel like Strategic plan discussions should have been on the docket all along and not just because green light failed.

4. Policy Implementation
Rating for this category is a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:    2/3

COMMENTS: Hard to say but very disappointed that in his recent medical absence, we had no leadership planned for the meeting.

Certainly very disappointed in the taping of an individual without their knowledge or agreement. New policy is implemented in a seemingly very cavaleer sp? manner.

5. Working Relationship with the PSTA Board (As a Governing Body)
Rating for this category on a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:   3

COMMENTS:  Seems fine at the Board meetings

6. Working Relationship with Individual PSTA Board Members
Rating for this category is a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:    3

COMMENTS:  Seems good but would suggest that he cycle through the board and visit members around agenda briefings to develop better communication and understandings...not monthly but perhaps once a year anyway.

7. Financial Resource Management
Rating for this category is a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:   2

COMMENTS:  The rhetoric displayed during the Green Light process seems inconsistent with financial condition of PSTA, at least in the short term.

8. Human Resource Management
Rating for this category on a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:   3

COMMENTS: Seems fine but again chain of command issues led to no one with the Board in Brads absence. Also there seems to be some "disconnect" between him and our attorney. More reactive to events and not proactive enough.

9. Community Leadership & Relations
Rating for this category is a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:   3

COMMENTS:  Not enough experience to comment here except I have heard very little about PSTA and our executive director from any business leaders. Again "desperate times" require calm and consistency in approach at the top.

10. Project Management
Rating for this category is a scale of 1 (worse) to 5 (best).   SCORE:   2/4

COMMENTS:  Greenlight efforts (not good) and project development (not enough experience yet) but late move to committees should help that in the future (2)

Ethical standards seem high (4)
