The Obama Administration has tapped one of the South Florida Water
Management District’s strongest Everglades advocates, Shannon Estenoz,
to be its point person on Everglades policy. “Shannon brings to this
position more than a decade of experience, leadership and passion for
Everglades restoration,” U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said.
Estenoz, who was appointed to the District’s board in 2007 by then-Gov.
Charlie Crist, applied for the post in August. The Real Deal recently
got an inside look at how the District’s deal with U.S. Sugar went down
last month. [Miami
