"You Are Being Duped"

covertTed you are being duped. It is obvious the Manager is doing his best to stifle you. He is huddling with his hand picked management team defensively and not responding to Council or appointed Boards. That was recognized and commented on by Council themselves.
If I recall correctly partly due to your efforts Council made the City Manager read file open to the public with the previous Manager. It included ALL emails to and from the Manager internally and externally. Information was redacted as needed. This was for Transparency after the Fiasco began for the protection of us taxpayers and so that Council was never again blindsided.
This Manager apparently never emails anyone other than a couple of the activists. He never answers questions via email and very rarely even sends any. The read file is a file full of Spam and not much more. He either does Nothing according to his email activity or operates underground in the dark like a rodent.
The read file is nothing more than a glorified spam box and appointment book. If you operate in a dark room I suppose that means you are not ” in the sunshine”. I would ask that he put on some sun screen and come out and enjoy the sunshine with everyone else.

    I have to agree. When I worked at the city in mid management I regularly used E-Mail every day to communicate with management, employees, engineers, contractors and vendors. I had a lot of work related content on my account. I don’t see very much like that on the CM account. Hmmm?

    A large part of the CM’s obsession with email and internet policy and monitoring is for his own control and manipulation of the intelligence and communications from within the workforce to the council and the citizens of Port Orange. He has gone to extremes to shut down any internal communication that does not conform to his propaganda machine.
    City employees are in fear of communicating honestly and openly with the council about improprieties and mismanagement within the organization. The city council needs to come to this realization and make a concerted effort to get out to all the workers in various departments and solicit their perspective with assurances of protection.
    Maybe an anonymously developed organizational 360 evaluation should be conducted of this CM to see just what the employee confidence level is on him. The council will likely get a much more disconcerting perspective than their own recent assessment or they can wait another year and go thru the motions again.
