Over the last several days I have watched in amazement as members of the Turlock City Council, have assailed my prior service as City Manager of the City of Turlock as part of their explanation to questions arising from the hiring a City Manager. Based upon these comments I feel reluctantly compelled to respond and place my service to Turlock in its proper context. In doing so, I first want to make it clear that I am not criticizing Turlock’s new City Manager. I have always found Mr. Wasden to be the consummate professional and wish him every success as he begins the next chapter in his career.
