It's not what you know, it's who you know.
And if there were an "exhibit A" for this old saw, his name would be Pete Antonacci.
Antonacci is leaving his post as executive director of the South Florida Water Management District to take the helm at Enterprise Florida, the embattled economic development agency championed by Gov. Rick Scott but loathed by House Speaker Rep. Richard Corcoran, who tried to gut it in this year's legislative session.
Now is a key time for Enterprise Florida as it retools after a huge budget cut. As such, one might think this is a job for someone with years of relevant experience.
