Mayor asks for resignations

Mayor Luke Ravenstahl yesterday asked for resignation letters from all department directors and authority heads that he did not appoint in an effort to re-evaluate their performance.

In a statement, the mayor said he was "not satisfied with the condition of city government" and will conduct a nationwide search for the best candidates to run departments.

He asked for resignation letters from the directors and asked that they continue to serve the city in an acting capacity. He encouraged them to reapply for the position "in order to prove they are the best person for the job."

Might I suggest they Mayor do the same thing....

I feel that the Mayor is wrong in wanting to have those people re-apply for their jobs, if they're doing the job and have been doing it for years obviously they know what they're doing or else they would have been let go years ago.
