Re: “The mayor and my mom

This letter hits home and is right on target. In 2005, the Albany City Commission encouraged its taxpayer-funded headhunter to identify city manager candidates not only of a certain race, but of a certain gender. The result: The only black male candidate that the headhunter brought to the table, a small-town Maryland public works director named Alfred Lott, was hired. The rest is history. After being administered very capably by a black female for eight years, our municipal government has transformed into a criminalized, secretive, spend-happy organization that has little regard for the citizenry it serves. The narrow-minded city manager recruiting process was just the first mistake. The second, greater aberration was the unwillingness (for various reasons, depending on the individual) of the mayor and City Commission members to either replace the city manager or force him to follow the rules and the law. I hope the good people of Savannah remain vigilant in insisting that their government operate openly and efficiently.
