Here’s The Scoop …. You Gotta Laugh …..

TOWN MANAGER COLON ….

Dear Readers…The topic du jour…in this down time of August…Town Manager Colon…..her contract…… her qualifications and her removal of Chief Scott Gooding…

While still waiting to see if and when her elusive resume’ will  be ready for pickup from Town Hall …a Google search to see any inkling of what might be contained in it brought forth nada…nothing…zilch…just the old standards ..the GFOA awards for Budget Presentations…mostly contained in old copies of minutes or Town Topics…(no wonder the administration wants to hold onto this old relic regularly relegated to circular despite the ridiculous claims from the VM that it is still viable with the “seniors” )…all finance…no educational/ BSO/Management info….But when Googling her predecessor…Robert Baldwin, who we now know had very different contract than she now enjoys…what popped up…his 30 years experience as a manager with the proper educational/experience qualifications contained in the Town Charter…….His 30 year”milestone” was  listed on the Florida City and County Management Assoc website…..a website for Managers…who knew?..

While our Town Manager chose to leave her Finance Director here as she [Colon] went solo to a beginner/intermediate training workshop in Chicago…this writer wonders why she did not join the FCCMA organization? Lack of qualification perhaps?…The FCCMA has a Manager In Transition program….and a look from April 2007 shows all those who joined and the LBTS Town Manager did not…Hmmmm…..

Too bad …..because she missed out on their annual conference in  St. Augustine in May….and one important topic on the agenda “WORKING WITH YOUR POLICE CHIEF FOR SUCCESS IN CHALLENGING TIMES”

You gotta laugh!….HA..ha…ha…

more to come….

You gotta laugh…..
