First, the background: Our local housing authority is refusing to give an easement to the city, and litigation may occur. The main guy behind this is the Exec. Dir. of the authority. To rein in this fellow (being the HA is an arm of the city), the Mayor is changing the HA board members as their terms expire, and replacing them with people who aren't just "yes men".
The Mayor's first re-appointment? Me... The lucky planner. This was 6 months ago, and the next one comes up tonight. But we had the HA board meeting today, and I just can't believe what this man said in an open meeting... Ready?
"I'm going to make it my job over the next four years to see that you and your boss (the City Admin.) are run out of town."
My reply? "Sir, please let the minutes reflect that comment."
What he doesn't realize is that the Mayor intends to have the new board contract with the city for services, which will make him... my employee.
