According to an article in the Orlando Sentinel, Orange County Mayor Rich Crotty and county officials agreed that Robert Ridgway would be too controversial (click here to read the article).
...
As a result of the outcry over Mr. Ridgway's application, Orange County is writing a formal policy to prohibit impounded animals from being given or sold to any person for use in laboratory testing or experiments. (Seminole County, Lake County, Volusia County and Sumter County already have similar policies in their county code.)
Background: Orange County (Florida) is hiring a Manager for its Animal Services Division. Among other responsibilities, Animal Services operates a shelter that impounded 20,000 dogs and cats in 2005. Among dozens of applications for the Manager position, the county was considering hiring Robert Ridgway, DVM. Since March 2006, Dr. Ridgway has been employed by the county as a shelter veterinarian. But prior to arriving in Florida, Dr. Ridgway had a sordid past.
For 10 years, Dr. Ridgway was Director of Laboratory Animal Medicine at Covance, one of the world's largest animal testing companies. Covance is hired by pharmaceutical and chemical companies to test products on animals. Every day in Covance labs, thousands of animals suffer and die in painful tests. (Visit www.CovanceCruelty.com to learn more about this horrible company.)
In his application for the Manager position, Dr. Ridgway boasted that at Covance one of his responsibilities was, "procurement of over 29,000 animals annually and coordination of animal use." He was also personally involved in testing chemicals on animals.

3. Urgent Action: Speak Out Against the Hiring of Dr. Ridgway for Orlando's Homeless Animals!
Among other responsibilities, Animal Services operates a shelter that impounded 20,000 dogs and cats in 2005.Unfortunately, over 11,000 of these animals were euthanized.We can do better.Animal Services needs strong leadership to improve adoptions and to promote spay & neuter.

Please contact the Orange County Commission and urge them to reconsider selecting Dr. Robert Ridgway as Orange County's new Manager of Animal Services.They need to hear from us before February 20th!
We need to flood their email and phones with our voices!!Here are some talking points: please state you are concerned and disappointed in the selection of Dr. Robert Ridgway as Orange County's new Director of Animal Services.His past employment proves he does not have the experience necessary to run a progressive, humane shelter.In addition, he is 68 years old and we want someone who will be here for the long haul with a better vision for Orange County's animals.
