I believe that tonight’s actions by Councilor Elliott crossed a clear line set forth in Section 107 of the City’s Charter. Section 107 prohibits Council interference with the City Manager’s municipal appointments and is designed to keep politics out of the hiring process.I am all for keeping politics out of the hiring process.
But, speaking to the new Treasurer, my former boss, who just two weeks ago this coming Friday left the firm where I am an intermittent worker, had nothing but positive things to say about Mr Greg Labrecque. So, I welcome Mr Labrecque.
