The city is advertising for an assistant city manager.  An assistant city manager was just hired Oct. 2013.  Does anyone know why the city is hiring again?

Probably need someone to do some actual work while the city manager carries the water for the Chamber.

I could do it. Of course, I will only work three hours per day and would expect travel to Europe and the middle east…and, I would expect a hefty salary, of course. Tell them to give me a call.

I’m just wondering why we don’t all already know what the story is.  When an assistant city manager resigned to take another job and the director of Parks and Rec resigned during 2013, both of those resignations were announced by the city in a press release.  So, where’s the story?  There was a print ad for the position in Sunday’s Mercury, so one would think the Mercury would know, but I’m sure the Mercury would say that the city reporter doesn’t know what’s going on in the advertisement department and vice-versa.

Wonder why Wynn isn’t responding.  Could it be that even the Commission isn’t aware of what’s going on?

There was finally a short story in Monday’s Mercury that said the guy who was just hired in October has resigned.

Must have been smart enough to do his own thinking… and didn’t want the Chamber doing it for him.

Kathy is correct. The individual hired in October determined that he did not wish to continue in the job and resigned.  My understanding is that much of that determination had to do with several personal reasons not related to the job.  Job mobility for whatever reason is everyone’s choice.  Not much else to the story.
