City Manager Richard Warne is desperate.
While the city rolls the dice stalling on public safety, it may be willing to place the private and public sectors in harm’s way — as well as the three 29 palms public schools.
Warne is squarely behind the cloak of danger.
Because when Warne packs his baggage and heads off to another job interview, he’ll be pulling a $31 million anchor of debt behind him.
That’s a lot of baggage with nothing to show for it, but nearly another quarter of a million in administrative costs and attorney fees.
Would another city or town council hire a man with that resume?
It’s do or die with Mr. Warne by any means necessary: Either a fire department or Project Phoenix. There is no room for both. Hence, he’s going after the Phoenix — albeit maybe a scaled-down version. He’s putting his self-serving objective over his employer’s interest. The people.
The City Council thus far is choosing Warne over the people, the schools and the private sector.
If the cake served at next Tuesday’s City Council meeting (Tuesday Dec 11) celebrating the City’s birthday is catered by Marie Antoinette, it’s foreshadowing “Let Them Ear Cake” in the stead of public and fire safety.
In such an event, it’s time for the public to be proactive with a mandate as per the Government Code as outlined by Dan O’Brien.
