I don't think bias based on where he is from is really a reason to say that he could not head up the DEC. The DEC encompasses a variety of functions outside the general "fish and game" world. These include (among other things) pollution law enforcement, review of impact statements and land management plans.

There are a lot of good people working at DEC, who remain working there, even with a change of leadership. Grannis' job will be mainly be a general oversight role. As long as he can lead an organization to clearly defined objectives we will be fine.
