This deserves reposting when it applies again and again.
"I don't think that good ole GC meets the criteria needed to be in the running. But even if it did, you really don't think that the "high paid Economic Developer" would know the first thing about sealing this deal do you?
That job was obviously handed to this sloppily dressed, unqualified man with zero knowledge of how to go about fulfilling his duties, only as a favor owed to the ex-councilman.
The fact alone that he continues to willingly collect a salary to this day, while producing NOTHING but another committee, to help him come up with ideas that also produce NOTHING, speaks loudly about his character and just how little he thinks of the city. Any man with an ounce of honesty and self respect would step down and walk away and admit defeat and allow someone else a chance at this position before there is no hope left for the city.
But the jokes on us, we re-elected this favor doing Mayor again for another term. We sat back and watched him flush our tax dollars down the toilet paying the previous economic developer's salary for years, while he did nothing to earn his paycheck."
