Ken: Steve Kean responded to my voice mail earlier this morning to advise
that "the announcement" was not to be made this morning and that I would be
contacted beforehand. I am concerned how any such announcement is worded. I
have shared with you my desire to seek a senior position in the George W.
Bush Administration which causes my extreme interest in an announcement and
the hope that I might be given words of appreciation for my tenure with Enron
and its predecessor companies. Thanks. Joe

Subject: Selection Of My Successor-My Concern

Ken: I have "heard" from two sources in this office that Enron will announce
my successor today. I have not been advised of the selection and am concerned
that this announcement will not treat my retirement in an appropriate and
deserving manner.

I have placed calls to Steve Kean since hearing this rumor but have not
received a response as of now. Admittedl, our phone service because of the
office construction is not totally functioning.

Frankly, I think this matter has not been handled in a caring way and I have
been acccused of giving information on the selection to Tom DeLay which is
untrue. My office mates are all more aware of the candidates and their status
than I have been.

I regret having to contact you on this matter but feel that despite my total
cooperation, allegiance and dedication to Enron, I am not being treated with
the courtesy and sensitivity that this matter deserves.
