DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CA – He said he was only on vacation but The Oregonian newspaper on Friday told a different story. City Manager Rick Daniels is one of three candidates selected as finalist for a County Administrator position in Clackamas County in Oregon. Daniels is clearly looking to exit Desert Hot Springs.

A meeting of the Desert Hot Springs Finance Committee last Thursday may explain why. In a presentation to the committee by city financial consultant Michael Bush the committee learned the city does not have sufficient revenues to meet expenditures and is suffering a fiscal crisis.

“Twelve months from now you have a big, big problem,” said Bush. “There is not a plan to grow. There is a plan to hope but not a plan to grow.”

Richard A. Daniels is more commonly known as Rick and often refers to himself as “The Duckman” due to his love of his alma mater the University of Oregon – and its college mascot a duck – may be looking to duck the city’s financial troubles. Those troubles, said Bush, are a result of the city “operating under a deficit for many years.”
