This does not bode well for professionalism in city government - at least, not from new mayors and councilors. Jack has the details. The term overreach comes to mind…
Meaning, he is bugging staff for ‘hard keys’ to their offices. Now, some of the City Hall doors are fitted with ‘card keys’ which have a digital fingerprint, identifying who and when had access. I’m told the snoopy mayor prefers the ‘hard keys.’ Why? He likes jangley key chains? Or, just wants to come and go without a trace? Dunno.
…Last week, mayor Elliott crashed the Department Heads meeting. Suffice to say, this meeting is completely outside the authority and oversight of the legislative branch (Council). And, the intrusion by mayor Elliott was deleterious to its routine patterns and function.
There’s more, like the plainly too-cozy relationship between WCAP and new Councilor Belanger.
Anyone want to place bets on whether the Sun will report on the City Hall overreaching? At a minimum, the new mayor is interfering with staff, which under Plan E, is a serious no-no. Imagine if Murphy had breached the rules in a similar fashion? The Sun thought an unsubstantiated rumor that Murphy broke the glass in a City Hall door by slamming it angrily (which never happened) was big news.
