Is Sierra Madre Close To Appointing A New City Manager?

This isn't quite as momentous as choosing someone like a new Pope, but for the dozens of residents who follow City Hall affairs it can be a very important thing. And judging by the two secret meetings of the City Council held this Friday and Saturday morning, the big announcement could be getting near. Here are abbreviated screenshots of the two pertinent agenda reports found on the City of Sierra Madre agency website.



At 7:45 in the morning, and on a Saturday no less! Most decent people haven't even stopped drinking at that hour. And for good reason.

There is also the matter of holding such a meeting on Friday the 13th. I am not sure Sierra Madre needs to add the kinds of problems associated with that date to its long list of already existing difficulties. What were they thinking?

Of course, some of you might be wondering why these fine City Manager candidates (whoever they might be) couldn't have been interviewed before the 5 or 6 regular resident attendees at City Council meetings. Not including the Tournament of Roses Princesses or Paulie Goosebumps, who have been known to show up from time to time. And that would be a good question.

Let me know if you come up with an answer.

  1. “I think this is just an unfortunate leak that’s making a huge mess,” Colbert said. “And I know I’m being a wet blanket, but reporting on this is the worst kind of yellow journalism. And even though jokes about this story are a golden opportunity, I just, I won’t do it! Not to say the story didn’t make a huge splash; it did. It flooded Twitter. I mean, we’ll keep you up to date as facts trickle in. We have our best researcher working on it; she’s a real whiz. And one thing is for sure: the president-elect is a Goldwater Republican who truly believes in trickle-down.”

  2. The first post of the day could care less about Sierra Madre and how the town is managed, so why bother. It's obvious that this will be a day of babbling from the obsessive left.

    1. What is your opinion about how Sierra Madre is governed?

  3. Don't expect this to result in a CM much better vetted than the last one. Will be most interested to see what the background is when the one chosen is introduced to the community (meaning where from? What experience?). In the last go around, no one who applied made the paper cut and then acting CM (retired from Monrovia) went out to look and found Elaine as an assistant something or another in Glendale and over she comes. You know the rest.

  4. Now would be a "golden" opportunity to find a CM who supports "yellow headed" Russian appointed, in name only president elect.

  5. It won't matter who is city manager. The city is so broke that the council will have only one solution.

    TAX,TAX,and then TAX some more.

    1. The great crisis of America is government and the amount of debt it creates. Both parties are responsible.

    4. Reagan was a tool. An actor who read someone else's lines to make you feel good while his corrupt cabinet commited war crimes.

  6. Some more good news! Idiot Brown is proposing a 42% increase in gas taxes and a 114% increase in our vehicle registrations to help bail out CalPERs. The joys of residing in a dark blue state:

    1. why do we have to bail out a ponzi scheme?

      I know a firefighter (different city) who "retired" at 55 and because he gets paid 80% of his salary forever for doing nothing, he took his savings and bought himself a Porsche, a boat, upgraded his house and took a 2nd career

  7. According to the real news Brown has proposed a 6% gas tax increase. Sales tax in Calif was reduced .25% to 7.25% Jan first.

    1. 6% is still a rip off if it's purpose to to bail out the public sector retirement plan

      I wish Calpers would go completely bankrupt

  8. I believed the city residence should have voted NO UUT. Many of the city staff and employees have pensions . We no longer need to pay for pensions. The city staff and employees have failed to make wise decisions and just continue to tax us. Eliminate the city taxes and pensions, hire a leader not another puppet!!

    1. The city is $40 million dollars in the hole to CalPERS. That's why. The Yes On UUT people lied about why that money was needed.
