"A leader is one who, out of madness or goodness, volunteers to take
upon himself the woe of the people. There are few men so foolish,
hence the erratic quality of leadership in the world."
Dave is our Town Manager...he sought the position knowing full well
that we were facing a financial crisis here in town.
Not only are we faced with the same financial downturn that the rest
of the nation has been facing, we are also having to come to grips with
a lawsuit against the town of Mammoth Lakes that has been fought to the
final conclusion, with Mammoth losing the final appeal.
The Town Council is taking hardline steps to curtail the budget...
town government has been trimmed to the quick and being asked to trim more...
we are a small town that quadruples in size during ski season and summer...
where do we cut?
Dave is our Town Manager and he has the difficult position of striking a
balance between managing the people who work so hard for the town,
the best interests of the citizens of our town,
and the decisions of the council who are trying to keep the town solvent...
Dave is a good man...and has taken the challenge to heart.
I don't know about you...
but I sure wouldn't want his job...
