For John, BLUF: Did you vote in the last election? Nothing to see here; just move along.
In today's "Saturday Chat" Mr Kendall Wallace talks about the exodus of professional city administrators, listing Tom Moses, Bernie Lynch, Cheryl Wright and Adam Baacke. And, he left out our chief of police, which just turned over to William Taylor, who took over from Ken Lavallee, who took over from Ed Davis. This is an important position in City Government. Then we had Senior Planner Aaron Clause depart for a new job.
The thing is, if the leadership has been doing its job the City Administration should be able to plow ahead without major course corrections for several months. That is baring a major disaster, such as a devastating earthquake.
I am confident the City Council can find a solution to all the holes we face, even if some are only filled by the City Council filling others. On the other hand, if you are nervous, you need to ask yourself if you voted in the last election. If you did you gave it your best shot. If not, shame on you.
