Pawlowski Puts Facts On The Ground
Pawlowski went ahead and had his nominee for Community Development Director start work, although the majority of Council indicated that they wouldn't approve him. Meanwhile, back at the council chambers, council said that they couldn't fit the vote in until mid October. Will they have the fortitude to send someone packing after he has already been working almost a month?
To me, the delay of the vote already indicates acceptance by council. I have often seen things put on the schedule at the last moment to accommodate one agenda or person. Another irony of this situation is that the administration is justifying the pre-approval hiring based on an opinion from a previous solictor, who of course served at Pawlowski's pleasure. Council voted for no confidence in Pawlowski, and I have little confidence that council will assert itself in this matter.
