|Tales of Sierra Madre glory|
It all started in the last week or so with the story we broke here about the "retirement" of City Manager Elaine Aguilar. But surprisingly that was hardly the end of it. We can also finally confirm that Director Bruce Inman is now on his way out as well.
And we can now share with you another piece of big news. Are you ready for this? Sierra Madre Police Chief Larry Giannone is also apparently heading out through the permanent door. A rumor at this point, but all of the pieces fit.
So what is the reason for so much sudden radical change? In the not too distant past the City Council in Sierra Madre seemed endlessly tolerant of the failures and inadequacies of its senior personnel.
Why such radical change now?
Apparently the City Council has been actually holding employees accountable for their work, and some aren't adjusting to that kind of pressure very well. Producing actual positive results being too onerous a burden for some to carry. And rather than continuing to be called out on their various screw ups and inadequacies, they're taking the money and running.
It really is about time this city got some new leadership.
