Be on the lookout for an announcement for a special meeting Friday, July 13th at 9am regarding the next City Manager

UPDATE: FRIDAY THE 13th. Long Beach really is a horror show….

Attention residents and media: Be on the lookout for an announcement for a special meeting Friday, July 13th at 9am regarding the next City Manager. The announcement is apparently happening tonight. This is not official, so keep refreshing the city page. A resident and friend  told me the following after hearing about this sneaky meeting:

This is precisely the opposite of what most engaged citizens requested. We all wanted someone who is non-partisan, unattached, who could bring some order and function to the management of the city and its finances. If they do this I would like to barrage the Herald with letters to the editor regarding the failure of our city council members to respond to constituent demand. So much for transparency.
