In a dramatic little speech last night during “Business from the Floor,” Scott Gruendl declared he has no further intention of seeking the city manager position with the City of Chico.
To this I would ask, “can we have that in writing, with witnesses?”
Here’s the link to the video, go over to the menu on the left and click on “Business from the Floor”. It’s a very nice mechanism, very nice.
Gruendl is pretty mad about the fact that people would question his integrity. To this I must ask, what the heck are you doing in POLITICS if you don’t expect people to question your INTEGRITY? Silly boy.
I wasn’t questioning his integrity, I was questioning the procedures by which he was operating as a public official. This is my right, and many believe, any citizen’s responsibility. You’d think I called him a “slut” the way he went off.
You’re not allowed to question Scott Gruendl. That’s racist!
But, I’ll hold Gruendl to his word. If he’s going to participate on that committee, he needs to dismiss himself as a city manager candidate, at least in Chico.
On a serious note, I believe Gruendl’s performance last night is part of a pattern of behavior on his part, to intimidate people out of participating and out of questioning his questionable actions. All we’ve done is ask questions about the process, and he makes accusations of racism? Where the hell did that come from? He admits that he made public his interest in a position of employment without first advising his current employer, but blames his problems on the citizen who made his employer aware of the situation?
He’s just trying to throw dirt to distract us from what he’s doing. That’s the time to keep your eyes peeled, folks.
