The Florida Transportation Commission will conduct interviews and nominate three candidates for submission to the Governor. The Secretary will then be appointed by and will serve at the pleasure of the Governor of Florida. Note that the “Government in the Sunshine” laws of Florida require that all documents related to the search process, including applications, will be available for public inspection. All interviews will be open to the public.
