Is Nancy One Of The Five?
Still no word on just who is in the running for city mangager of Rio Dell. All we know, from today's Times- Standard, is there are five applicants. I'll have to admit I normally wouldn't be much interested in who gets the job but when the rumor arose that our very own Nancy Flemming was among the applicants, that certainly piqued my interest.
James Faulk threw out Flemming's name a couple days ago in his Bully Pulpit column. I don't know if he just picked up the rumor from Cap'n Buhne's blog, or he has other inside information. I mentioned elsewhere that Buhne never said who he was referring to when he posted the question as to which past Board of Supervisor candidate was applying for city manager of Rio Dell.
It seems someone threw out Flemming's name, others assumed that must be it and picked up and ran with it. Seems to me Flemming's not the only past BOS candidate around here. Of course, I could be wrong, but I can't see Nancy working in Rio Dell. Too much of a disruption of lifestyle.
C'mon Nancy, fess up. Are you applying for the job?
I always wonder why government officials are so tight lipped about who's applying for certain jobs. I suppose I could see it if there are a whole bunch of applicants, but five, as in the case of Rio Dell city manager?
Then again, we've seen here on the blogs how some people will attack others for no apparent reason. I guess we'd be hearing a lot more of that in the blogosphere if the names of applicants for Rio Dell manager and Eureka Police Chief were known.
Still, it would almost seem appropriate in the interests of open government for citizens to have an look at who wants to work for them. Or would it?
I guess I should just take my own advice that I gave others after the polls closed last November and they still had a lot of vote counts and recounts to do and some were biting at the bit to know what the results were: Just relax, move on, and wait for the results to be tabulated.
Ok. I'm relaxed.
