There is not much time left before Greg Kisela and Wayne Saunders will be leaving with the near½ million they received from Port Orange taxpayers in exchange for the accomplishments they showered on us all.
We will be forever indebted to Howard Tipton the Dean of the local ICMA for convincing Council to task the Range Riders with short listing our last round of manager candidates, and to Dick Kelton for his un-canny ability to perceive the talent Kisela and Saunders displayed during their brief hiatus with us.
To have had not one, but two experienced ICMA super stars guiding our City at the same time has been an experience we shall soon not forget.
It is fitting therefore that the ICMA FOA recently sought to recognize their fine service to Port Orange residents through two outstanding awards the LIFESAVER and the EXCELLENCE IN FINANCE.
My suggestion is that at the next Council meeting Saunders present Kisela with the LIFESAVER award for saving his worthless butt, after which Kisela would present the EXCELLENCE award to Saunders for pointing out that bank reconciliations are overrated, and for creating a ‘higher taxes required’ budget that pleases the Mayor and his Chamber, and gives all of us yet another opportunity to become better citizens by learning to love higher taxes.
