He knows the history , the people and what it means to earn a buck and pay taxes here. I believe he would have the best interest of the people above all else. But that’s just my opinion.

He is a very wise man and knows how to budget and run a well oiled machine. He did it for years at the county level. Give him an honest observation while interim city manager.

They do this because they know we have no where else to turn. So hopefully things change with new person. Report Reply 0 replies · active 328 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
