Editor:

Re. Floresville names finalist for city manager position, Sept. 11

The information in this article, if true, should be disturbing to the citizens of Floresville.

How can we, the city, end up with a top candidate for this key position that appears to have such questionable background? This is particularly concerning in light of the claimed lengthy and meticulous search done by the city and the reported abundance of applicants.

The city probably spent a significant amount of money in hiring a professional recruiter. One would think that we were paying this recruiter to assure that we would not be blindsided, so to speak. Based on the answers given by some of the selecting council folks, it would appear that this did not happen. So the decision to hire is not final yet. I just wonder what happens if the city should back off at this point. I don’t think this would turn out too well.

Also, when the city is in an insolvency posture, why are we not concerned about committing significant amount of funds to relocate the selected finalist? With the number of applicants reported, did we not have quality local or area candidates?

To quote a recent comment by one of our elected officials: Que mugrero! (Loose translation: What a mess!) This comment was made in reference to some things done by the previous administration. I guess what goes around comes around.
