No BRAC expected in near future

Santa Rosa County’s military liaison, Pete Gandy, gave commissioners good news during the board’s April 23 meeting – no Base Closure and Realignment (BRAC) proceedings are expected until at least 2017, “if” then.

Commissioners April 20 selected Gandy to continue in the part-time military affairs position he has held since 2009, and last Thursday the retired U.S. Air Force colonel updated the board on his April 14 and 15 Northwest Florida Defense Coalition trip to Washington, D.C.

Gandy told the board about 50 representatives from five neighboring counties, from Escambia to Bay, took the trip to meet with Pentagon and Congressional leaders and advocate for Northwest Florida’s military industry.
