Lugo's Big Mistake: Changes Ahead at GRC Halted

- Larger GRC Org Chart image

Keith's update: This recent Glenn Research Center reorganization attempt by Ray Lugo was in direct defiance of orders given out by Charlie Bolden to all NASA center directors to not shake things up prior to the election. You see, Ohio is a crucial state in terms of this election - and Lugo's actions have caused a bit of a stir. As a result Ray Lugo's days as GRC Center Director are numbered as far as Bolden is concerned. Bolden has shut this re-org down. Of course, there will be official denials - but that's what is going on behind the scenes. Meanwhile, Bolden has already been admonished by the White House not to shake things up either after his attempt to replace a bunch of center directors. Stay tuned.

Reader comment: "when Mr. Lugo presented the chart to the employees of Glenn Research Center he predicted that some employee would release this to NASA Watch, even though it was made clear that the chart is "pre-decisional", where is the integrity in that."

Keith's update: It still amazes me that a decade into the 21st century that some parts of NASA are stuck in the 19th century.

NASA chart removes Stringer as Plum Brook chief, Sandusky Register

'There's a proposed seismic shakeup to NASA's hierarchy and a revamped organizational chart cuts out Plum Brook Station director Gen. David Stringer completely. Stringer has spearheaded station promotions, including providing dozens of tours for hundreds of community members and elected officials, during his five-year tenure as director. The exposure helped NASA executives approve some of the roughly $567 million invested in the station during the past decade. But his goodwill could abruptly end. The Register obtained the chart through an independent source and later verified the document with NASA spokeswoman Katherine Martin."
