LT - In Charge

Today, Cauthen is in the fine Texas capitol city of Austin, interviewing for the City Manager’s position and I know many, many, many, many who wish him well. The interview is Tuesday and Wednesday we understand that he’s staying a week? Curious, don’t you think? Maybe it’s a vacation. Or, maybe he’s holding court with other head hunters or ‘talent scouts’ from other cities. He is a sly and devious being.
However, the ‘thumbing the nose’ at ya’ – is the fact that LT has been left in charge in his absence. We find this appallingly disrespectful to City Council – this includes you, Ed The Cheerleader. It is incredibly disrespectful to the employees of City Hall and to the citizens of this community. It is absurd. The only person he could think of to leave in charge is someone who is a lame duck employee of questionable character, moral and ethics. Wayne sure does think highly of us all doesn’t he?

Thank you Councilwoman Hermann for speaking up on the inappropriateness of this act.

Where's the outrage from the rest of the councilmembers? Where is your common sense, Jan, Beth, Ed, Melba, Cindy, Terry, John, Cathy, Bill, Russ, Sharon? This is the man you want to keep? He's playing you like violins. What a terrible sound you all make.

The rest of the council are licking their wounds - ouch, did WC give it to them! Maybe if the newbies had been paying attention they would've known what kind of guy he really is. BTW - give Russ credit - he voted to ditch WC.

How can a city employee who is under fire and has resigned effective this month be at the helm? Upon her resignation appropriate measures should be taken to lock her out of the system not give her the keys to wreck havoc and perhaps clean up any mess still left standing!!!
Mayor Pro-tem and fellow human council members DO SOMETHING! We know that Funk-ee is incapable of raising the issue because he has no credibility, (something about his useless and gross wife sticking something somewhere...)but you have the obligation to take security steps NOW.
I also wonder if this is a breach of management. How can a professional manager make such a wrong decision? Does he lack the skills to leader effectively? I'd venture that as Yes.

I guess the Dr. wasn't the only one sticking his finger up Funky's butt.

Check the expense report and see if he's arrogant enough to claim mileage or airport parking.

GPS,this is much more than "thumbing the nose". WC's arrogance and behavior is akin to that of a dictator or sovereign who is "above the law". First, he forces HR to rewrite the job requirements so that he can appoint his "queen" to a high paying position by his side. Second, he quashes an internal investigation of her porno obsession, then sits on the results for six months. Third, he ignores City "law" and refuses to terminate her. Then, he allows her to "resign", making a secret deal to provide her with severance and/or grounds to sue the City for a substantial sum of money. This latest act simply caps his continuing refusal to treat her as an employee, but rather to keep her elevated to the special role of "queen of KC", proudly walking hand in hand with her "king".
Geez -- how sick can it get???

Cauthen is deliberately rubbing the council and mayor's nose in his s**t, showing his complete disregard for this city, its employees, and its elected officials (I almost said "leadership", then I realized how ridiculous that was).
If this council has ANY sense at all, they will not take this latest affront and will realize what kind of fools WC considers them to be. This guy believes that he can get away with ANYTHING!

Cauthen and LT, BOTH, should be perp-walked out of City Hall in broad daylight under tight security with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, not allowed to take so much as a pencil off their desks or the keys to their cars, in full view of every City employee.... like the way the TYRANT treated Mr. Frevert.

The only difference, Mr. Frevert was a humble, honest, ethical, kind, fair, decent, capable, effective, innocent, highly-respected City employee who DID NOT deserve such treatment.

That's not Wayne's car though is it?
