Kudos to the council for rebuking an obvious move by new City Manager Alex McIntyre, who seems out to just build up his bureaucracy. Apparently he didn't have a pleasant tenure is his last position in Oregon either.

There is no better use for town square than for anonymous people to propose scandal. If the new city manager had any issues at his last job, one of you "experts" would have posted a link. Apparently, Embarcadero is the only publisher willing to support this sort of behavior. I'm not suggesting that the new city manager is doing a good or bad job, only that Embarcadero is asleep at the wheel by republishing unfounded gossip.
