- The Commissioners would be wise to go beyond evaluating the town managers "managing up" skills and think about the tone he sets for employees. As a resident I am perplexed when firefighters show up at a Council meeting in an attempt to influence taxing decisions to their own benefit, when two police officers are fired for threatening the public, and a third initiates a civil suit for $1 million against the residents he is hired to protect. Many of us do not agree that that is a private matter -- or need some information to convince us that this is so. Too many town employees intimidate rather than serve. That tone is set by management.
- Last year about this time this Newspaper wrote an editorial concerning the Town Manager's performance. In essence, the article said the TOWN MANAGER must go. Has anything really changed this NEWSPAPER'S opinion?
