Well it has been a sucky couple weeks for sure and it just got "suckier"... at work at least. After losing a close friend at work due to a horrible car accident, I find out today that my excellent boss is calling it quits against the 'funny farm' people on our City Commission. She started in late 2004 just after my Father passed away and has been an ardant supporter of me and my department from the beginning.
I do not blame her as all since there are a couple commission members that have been out to get her since the beginning, one that doesn't know what is going on, and one that appears to be in the same Anti-City-Staff crowd. It might be different if there were actually staff that didn't know what they were doing but it is the other way around. A building maintenance/janitor trying to tell a City Manager and Finance Director how to run the City... get real.
It is going to be much harder to do things the right way without the support I had in the past. Time will tell where this all goes...
