    Greg,

    1. Stop with the folksy, “Gosh darn, good neighbors,” bit when you editorialize. You’re our Mayor, not our elementary school teacher. Talking to your constituents as though cajoling a small child or a bunch of country duds that wouldn’t understand big words doesn’t work. Trust us.

    “I ordered a top-to-bottom restructuring of the APCD and we asked Mr. Smith to help give us guidance and direction. Let me emphasize this point clearly and concisely: This was my call to make, not a third party.”

    Sherlock Fischer: pulleeeeezzzz stop with the condescending attituding – you think we don’t know it’s your decision…since you’re Mayor and all…..

    We get the bit about the federal regulatory issues and audit. What we don’t get is the “complete restructuring” wherein everyone reapplies for their jobs. Sounds like a way of trying to get rid of employees without any push back. If you want to “take out the trash” then follow your own policy of progressive discipline.
