So, let’s follow our fantasies. What if someone actually measured the performance of our City Administrator and caused said Administrator to vacate the office. Then what? What or who do we need to lead the City? What are the qualifications required for the job? Who should be involved in the hiring process? Please don’t say national search, that’s how we got in this mess. For our own entertainment, I am asking for fun seeking Niagara Hub participants to send in ideas related to running this City efficiently.
City employees: Please chime in on how things should be managed, what you want your boss to do, what you want your boss to stay away from.
City residents: What personality traits should a City Administrator master to communicate effectively to the voters and taxpayers of Niagara Falls?
Businesses: What qualifications should someone controlling the direction of this City embody? How should this person deal with developers, business owners, and investors?
So just for sh**s and giggles, lets create the perfect resume that should be submitted by a candidate for City Administrator. We can compare it to the resume of the current City Administrator (By the way has anyone seen that document? I’d like to call a few references, or confirm the experiences paragraph, but I’ve already spent too much time trying to disqualify an obvious stellar professional.) More importantly, perhaps we could submit it to someone at City Hall for their consideration, should someday, somehow, a replacement be needed to fill the most important job in the City.
