TACOMA: City doesn’t need a shooting star

Re: “San Antonio official is Tacoma’s next city manager” (TNT, 12-21).

The article suggests that at least one Tacoma City Council member supported T.C. Broadnax for Tacoma city manager because he wouldn’t consider Tacoma a “last stop.”

Does anyone remember the series of rising stars that were chosen for Tacoma school superintendent? They left for better positions after creating a stir and without much of an impact here in Tacoma.

I’d take Andrew Neiditz over most anyone. He’s passionate and knowledgeable about Tacoma and intends to make this his home for many years to come. Shooting stars are more dramatic but fleeting. We need a glowing, solid sun who shines warmly and sustains us.
