I agree that the city needs to address these questions, and soon. These are procedural concerns, so the city should not be able to hide behind the excuse of "confidential personnel matters." Can the Almanac shed any light on who within the city is actually responsible for communicating to the public regarding these concerns? Is there any precedent for informing the public on process issues that are related to personnel matters, without treading into "confidential" territory? There is still a lot of public interest in resolving the problems within the gymnastics program, but no one knows who is ultimately responsible for any of this mess.

The Community deserves answers. Since the City Manager already stated that he was "satisfied" with the decision to fire Ms. Sutton. It would take a man with integrity to admit he was wrong and actually conduct a full investigation and make the necessary changes to the Community Services Department and put an end the hostile work environment.

Do we really need a fifth (or is it sixth?) thread covering the exact same topic?
