Maplewood City Council Policy & Politics


Dec. 18th Visitor Presentation

As I suggested a couple days ago, Maplewood needs a seasoned, professional city manager, who can effectively manage the city and implement the council's directives. Launching a search for such an individual needs to be the first priority of a new council.

For most of 2006, the council's stated intention was to undertake such a search. However, the council majority decided instead to make the interim manager permanent (on a 3-1 vote with one member on a planned absence). On December 18th, I went to the city council visitor presentations with prepared remarks, to ask them to restart the search process. Here is a video of my presentation.
