We have always had a pretty independent and rowdy bunch of Council People that have better or worse brought us to what we are as a city today. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We are hoping that the Council tonight take another look at their choice for City Manager. Postpone the decision for another couple of weeks. Another week. Our reporter in Livingston has new information that might well change the mind of the council.
Give us a chance to flesh this guy out before you commit the city to his tennure as City Manager. Listen to the information we are compiling, listen to the players on both sides of the Livingston and Coalinga stories.
Council…. You might in the end approve his hiring but it is the right of the People to know everything they can about the man who is about to take the wheel of Twentynine Palms.
I can confidently tell you that there is going to be some very disappointed Councilmen, when this guy puts his management style into play. His idea of a Council is to rubber stamp his management decisions. It will be his vision, not the vision of the council.
Please postpone your decision until the story is published or the information is given to you.
