As we have read in the news, another two more members of Mayor Jerry Sanders inner circle have lost their heads. Advertisement Assistant Chief Operating Officer Rick Reynolds and Purchasing and Contracting Director Lance Wade were the latest in a series of firings down at City Hall.
First, we saw the public firing of Jim Waring two months back, then the sudden disappearance of Marcela Escobar-Eck last month. They were connected to the ill advised role the Mayor took in the Sunroad debacle. When a major campaign donor does not get his way, then heads role and since their disappearance the media has dropped the ball on any further investigation of the issue. Funny how that happens.
Now with the Mayor's contracting out project on the ropes and possible local donors to the Republican Party not getting the bid we see two folks from his inner circle loss their jobs. I guess the Mayor learned from his last mistake. Fire people and the media won't cover the issue and donors will be happy.
We should expect more firings next month, because there is bound to be some other problem in the Mayor's office uncovered or an unhappy donor for another head to roll.
