With the passing of midnight the administration of city government has another smooth and seamless transition as John Krol's stewardship gives way to new manager Sharon Addison.
Everybody involved did a great job in ensuring a successful hiring and transition.
For me, there is a welcoming meeting at 8:30 and then Ms. Addison is on her own with a busy first day ending in the 7PM Council meeting.
The new manager has the cooperation of staff who seem anxious to complete the transition put in motion by City Council's actions last January.
I have heard only positive and supportive comments about her hiring and arrival, and I know there were those skeptical we would get to this point so quickly and smoothly.
City Council is directly responsible for only the hiring of two people...The manager and the city clerk. In a rare confluence of events, both had to be done by this Council in the span of a year. I will leave it to residents to judge the results.
I am glad the task is done.
