Oro Valley Council Will Consider Process For Hiring New Town Manager

The Explorer reports that the Town Council will consider options in hiring a new Town Manager at the Jan 20 meeting.

KC Carter, who along with Mayor Loomis, "lame duck" Al Kunisch & recently resigned Paula Abbott may not have considered the problem when they forced our Manager David Andrews out of office in a meeting on Sept 23 that we contend may well have violated the Az Open Meeting Law.

It was either that, or Loomis's keen sense of "intuition" when he said he had an "intuitive sense" that the council would not agree to discuss David's position in Executive Session, or the fact that he (Loomis) had the votes to terminate David.

The Attorney General's office is looking into our complaint.

Neither Loomis or Carter deserve the vote of any person as they both seek reelection.


Here's The Explorer article.

What was wrong with the one we had?

Nombe--- Good question. All we know is what Loomis told us--- "There were issues."

Like, maybe the Manager wasn't the "yes man" Loomis wanted.

Now Carter who helped "push " David out has concerns. It's just another example of "unintended consequences" under the inept leadership of Mayor Loomis.
