Manager Kisela wins an award for employing a re-tread ex-manage as the City’s CFO
Dianne has provided the key to understanding what motivates ICMA managers. They look at everything through the prism of not what is in peoples interest, BUT RATHER through the prism of pleasing other ICMA members. Manager Kisela knows his days in Port Orange are numbered and that it is only a matter of time before he will be hoping some other ICMA hack will be winning an award for employing him.
I have long realized that the ICMA was a sleazy self serving, payroll boosting, self promoting and self advancing association of incompetent primadonnas prattling around telling everyone within earshot that they, and only they know how to run cities and counties, BUT I NEVER realized they actually have a “life saver award” that they give to non-feasants like Manager Kisela, for hiring in-competents like his CFO/ re-tread manager who for most of last year either did not know how to do reconcile the City’s bank accounts himself, OR who was too lazy to ensure monthly bank reconciliations were done on a timely basis by someone else.
I have had it with Manager Kisela and his non-stop 24/365 excuse making for the screw-ups in Port Orange government. Port Orange needs a no nonsense Manager from the private sector who believes in responsibility and accountability and who has a demonstrated record of accomplishment as judged by the marketplace and not by the self styled “range rider” ICMA hacks who introduced the current Manager and CFO to our fair City.
Isn’t the Utilities Director also a member of ICMA
