Letter: Town manager search (October 31, 2017)

A recent article discusses Apple Valley’s town manager search. This brings to mind two critical points that need to be addressed, specifically the total compensation for the Town Manager (2016) and (some) assistant town managers is greater than the governor of California. This is a ridiculous situation resulting from insufficient oversight and control by the Town Council. Now is the time to start correcting that problem.

Secondly, Assistant Town Manager Marc Puckett may well be considered for this position. If so, the full and complete circumstances of his (recent traffic accident) must be made public. This matter was sent to the District Attorney for determination some time ago. Let’s be sure it doesn’t get swept under the rug for political considerations.

Dean Schepis, Apple Valley
