City Councilman Cody Horbacz says the hiring of former water czar Michael Sligar as shadow fire chief was not explained to Council and should have been due to the high profile nature of the role.
Mr. Horbacz criticized the CM on TV yesterday. Other members had given a sort of ex post facto OK, saying who gets hired is the City Manager's job.
It is, but the Sligar hire was unique and part of a new twist in the Fire Department battle so it's not like hiring a lifeguard or a clerk-typist.
Mr. Horbacz is odd man out on this, and if he had known ahead of time wouldn't have been able to stop it, so as the old saying goes...'what difference does it make.'
UPDATE: Mr. Horbacz texted me to say it is her call, but that TV 7 left that part out.
