Quote of the Day
In a nutshell, that’s the culture of Eureka city government: None of your beeswax.
But while Newman says the city council is keeping secret “things” it can’t “let out,” he opens the other side of his mustache and says ”Nielsen is the only person that can shed light on it.”
But Nielsen already “shed light” on the only reason given for the firing. City Manager Dave Tyson told him he was fired for “differing management styles.” If he was fired for a separate reason, Tyson didn’t tell him what it was.
Ducking responsibility to be open about a management decision while at the same time blaming a lack of transparency on someone else looks ridiculous. Voters are angry and worse — they are laughing at the clown show.
