"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Being in their 2nd term, that group of councillors has no intention of heeding the new CAO. They know it all now despite having Mr Garbe baby-sit for them when they were first elected.

I'm still surprised, after 9 years of this blog that readers have still not understood circumstances 
of replacement of various directors in the town's administration with the  Mormac election. 

It was never intended  for council to receive sound professional advice. Credentials, therefore, did not signify. In fact, less qualified, better suited. 

With each replacement, the strategy became more pronounced. Decisions henceforth were contrived exactly as directed by the dreadful duo. 

The town did not thrive. Bad things happened. 

The list is endless.

Consequences linger.

Not least, two Councils without guidance or experience of even a hint of competent management of town business. 

The task of the new Chief Administrive Officer is particularly difficult. 

Departure of the previous was start of an exodus. 

Manager of Communications ...Town Solicitor/ Director of Corporate Services...Manager of Human Resources and the latest we hear, Municipal Clerk. 

If he's good at the job, the challenge will not faze  the new CAO. 

Changes required cannot be subtly accomplished. 

Council can't be changed  but if well-served ,it can be improved.

I hope he is up to the task. There are a couple of councillors who will try to drive the bus.

None bothered to take that course.

If he is a born and raised Sudbarian, he'll be driving the bus.
