Re: “Tacoma city manager cashes in on $35,000 per year pay raise” (thenewstribune.com, 11-11).

Tacoma City Manager Eric Anderson is a hired gun. These administrators negotiate terms as they ride into town with a parachute escape clause.

He rode in an out of Evanston, Ill. (my original hometown). He rode in an out of Des Moines, Iowa, as recently as 2004. He is now ready to leave Tacoma, unless he gets gold scattered at his feet.

Where is his loyalty? He can leave anytime and will. I predict it.
