Re: “2 Tacoma directors dismissed from jobs” (TNT, 5-9).
So the new city manager is getting rid of some of the city bureaucrats who actually run the city.
It will do no good whatsoever. A city of 200,000 citizens cannot be run by an unelected bureaucrat who answers to no one if he can keep five members of the City Council on his side.
We elect council members who rely on the city manager and his unelected “team” for all of their information only to be bamboozle” at the last minute and left holding the bag. Think Walmart.
Tacoma will forever be playing catch-up as cities with democratically elected, modern government run circles around us.
