Probably Greg is a good man, but wasn’t up to the hard job awaiting him here in Port Orange, and more probably he was taken under the wing of Mayor Green as one of Green’s team players. Someone needs to get through to the next city manager that if he follows the orders of Mayor Green, he will be in trouble, because there is a new mood in America and in Port Orange which the old timers can not adjust to..
I wish Greg well, and I applaud him for finally coming to grips with the reality here in Port Orange. A city manager’s job in most cities in Florida is a tough job. I wonder how Parker instructs his students about how to walk the line of appeasing the influential in a city, while still doing what is right for the public. Or perhaps I have it all wrong. The city council should be looking out for the public, and the city manager merely follows orders from the city council. I think that Greg perhaps felt that was is job here in Port Orange. Can any one not think after all is said and done,that the failures in our city government can be laid on the heads of former city council people, and especially Mayor Green?
